    This is posted due to many having trouble finding this post. The post is imbedded in another thread so the search engine is not good at pulling up "The Drill" Hopefully one of the moderators will make this a sticky.

    Many thanks go out to the original poster of this drill here, mello dude. He was the one who found and posted this in the earlier thread.

    Here is the thread. there is lots there as well:

    I had originally copied and pasted mello dude's drill here for quick reference. However, the original thread is a living thread with updates that need to be seen rather than to just rely on what I copied here. So for you to get the best info available, I have deleted what I had pasted here earlier and am just directing you to the above original thread.

    Thanks MD. Your finding of this drill was very much a good thing. I just thought it needed its own platform and you deserved the credit. All I did was cut and paste.

    Just for the halibut........ It's a silly ass story but here's how it came about....

    I have been screwing with bikes and cars for whole lotta years, always been a wrench'n geek foole..... and before the drill, one day with a good beer buzz on, I just got annoyed at all the confusing try this and that, ping and pong round and round stuff that didnt really give a step by step directions on a charging debug. So I decided to set out to write a stupid simple, step by step and the procedure was born.
    A few weeks later, one on my neighbor bike guys, stops by and says, "hey what's that drill you do to check your charging system" DOH! "The Drill"?...... Wasnt gonna name it, but I got smacked in the face.

    Cheers and beers gang....

    Just a re-post of this very valuable thread which was originated by mello dude and posted by myself. The subject came up the other day on chat and seems this thread was hard to find.

    Maybe one of the moderators can make this a sticky, whatever that does for it.
