Johnny, if you have an issue with drags, please discuss with them directly. Not on the forum.

This is a new item that has just been manufactured by Wassells so there should not be any delay in supply and many dealers will have them.

Yes, they just measure the current flowing along a wire.

You will have to swap the connections so that you get it showing a positive charge when the dynamo/alternator is charging. An easier method is to get it showing a negative when the engine isn't running and the lights are on (depending on how the bike is wired of course).
