      Electrical Theory
      A observation from years of creating Smoke

      All electrical components and wiring harnesses depend on proper circuit
      functioning, which is the transmission of charged ions by retention of the
      visible spectral manifestation known as "smoke". Smoke is the thing that
      makes electrical circuits work. Don't be fooled by scientists and engineers
      talking about excited electrons and the like. Smoke is the key to all things
      electrical.

      We know this to be true because every time one lets the smoke out of an
      electrical circuit, it stops working. This can be verified repeatedly
      through empirical testing. For example, if one places a large copper bar
      across the terminals of a battery, prodigious quantities of smoke are
      liberated and the battery shortly ceases to function. In addition, if one
      observes smoke escaping from an electrical component such as a voltage
      regulator, it will also be observed that the component no longer functions.
      The logic is elementary and inescapable! The function of the wiring harness
      is to conduct the smoke from one device to another. When the wiring harness
      springs a leak and lets all the smoke out of the system, nothing works right
      afterward.

      Starter motors were considered unsuitable for motorcycles for some
      time largely because they regularly released large quantities of smoke from
      the electrical system. Once again, the logic is clear and inescapable.
      Sometimes you may miss the component releasing the smoke that makes your
      electrical system function correctly, but if you sniff around you can often
      find the faulty component by the undeniable and telltale smoke smell.
      Sometimes this is a better indicator than standard electrical tests
      performed with a volt-ohm meter.

      In conclusion, the basic concept of transmission of electrical energy in the
      form of smoke provides a clear and logical explanation of the mysteries of
      electrical components and why they fail.
