Motorcycle and Motor Driven Cycle Electrical System Maintenance of Design Voltage
This SAE Recommended Practice pertains to electrical systems of motorcycles both with and without batteries. Purpose This document provides minimum illumination voltage values for all motorcycle classifications as specified in SAE J213 describes test procedures to determine that these voltages are maintained.
Rationale: This document is being revised in several places for clarification and consistency:
The wording of 4.7 was changed for consistency with 4.5 and 4.6
The wording of 4.8.1 was changed for consistency with 4.6.1 and 4.7.1
Section 5.1 and 5.2 were changed to specifically call out tail lamp voltage requirements
