How to make a PVA, parts are cheap, puts together in 10mins, will need a multimeter with at least 10Mohms, thanks to Metalv from Honda ATV forum, the press button is to discharge the capacitor so that you cant get a shock once measurement is over, uses can be found in appropriate Workshop Manuals.

So what type of use is this good for eg perhaps checking if peak voltage delivered by a bike/cars chanrging system doesnt during a ride go over a healthy value of around 14-15v?

Good for checking the ignition System, ignition coil and ignition pulse generator as in Honda 929 page 17-4 of the manual and cdi's on older bikes

Yeh sometimes its all about the quality of the spark, can save a lot of grief smile
