Good stuff.

I once had a Honda C90 whose battery kept going flat if I drove around with the headlight on its "low" setting. It was only after consulting the wiring diagram that I discovered I'd be better off putting it on its "high" setting, because that also switched in the other half of the generator. So I tried that, and the battery no longer went flat.
