New! FireBox Pro for Triumph, Norton and BSA twins FB-0020

You've asked for it and now here it is! Programmable from your laptop PC, the FireBox Pro is a versatile ignition giving you the ultimate in performance from your Norton, Triumph or BSA engine. FB-0020

The advance curve can be set with 11 points by simply dragging the dots on the curve or by entering the values in the boxes. The rev limit is programmable along with the coil dwell time making it compatible with a wide variety of large and small ignition coils.

No wasted sparks unless you want them! This is a 2 channel box capable of firing both cylinders independently with enough flexibility to suit V-Twins, parallel twins or engines with modified crank angles.

What's different about it? The programmable settings for the advance curve, rev limit and engine parameters such as cam or crank triggering, electric or kick start, 2 or 4 stroke and number of cylinders allow you to tailor the operation to your specific requirements. We have supplied FireBox Pro kits for offset cranks, single cylinder speedway engines and supercharged Nortons to name a few.

The pickup unit fits easily under the stock covers while the control box hides under the seat or fuel tank or behind one of the side covers.

We can match this system up with some high powered ignition coils to get the best out of your high compression or supercharged engine. If you need a wasted spark installation ( for compatibility ) we can do that too.

The programming kit (software and cable) is sold separately. We can also supply the box preset to your requirements. Now you can have the performance you've been looking for from your classic racer or road bike!

New! Triple TRI-0002 - SD with Miniature Coils

New for this month is a special version of our popular triple ignition that is compatible with miniature coils.

The coils are small enough to fit under the tank in some installations. We first trialed this version on Gerry's Rob North featured in a previous story with great results. The bike revs out beautifully now and has covered several thousand miles - Gerry loves to ride this one!

What's different about it? We made it compatible with Gerry's existing miniature coils (Boyer ignition) supplied with the bike but extended the dwell time for higher spark energy.

Now available as a complete kit with Lucas miniature coils and our HT leads - look for the TRI-0002-SD

Please note that the TRI-0002 and TRI-0002-SD are not interchangeable

Coming Soon BMW and Guzzi FireBox Pro

One of our customers in Brisbane with his beautiful and very original R100RS is currently using a new version of the FireBox Pro for his BMW. He says it starts up faster and runs better with improved torque over his previous electronic ignition which he said lacked performance.

What's different? We set this up with a powerful dual output coil retaining the wasted spark for compatibility with his stock electronic tachometer. These bikes have what's called the 'bean can' ignition that the factory used for 2 years with contact breaker points before changing to electronic.

We set this one up with a custom advance curve with more advance at lower revs to improve the torque and pickup from low speeds.

Book yours today! Contact Tri-Spark

Also new is the FireBox Pro for the Moto Guzzi first installed in this mildly customised machine built by another one of our Brisbane customers.

The installation into the distributor eliminates the auto advance and replaces it with smooth electronic timing control. This is a sequential firing ignition using 2 powerful coils giving ample spark for easy starts and more power! Sounds Great!

We will have more of these kits ready soon! Book yours today! Contact Tri-Spark

BSA Rocket Three with a difference

One of our customers here in South Australia tells the story of his Rob North in a recent magazine article with all the details you would like to know about this extraordinary bike.

Gerry's bike presented some unique challenges that led us to make a custom ignition for this machine which he writes about toward the end of this article.

FireBox Pro Update

Moto Guzzi, Ducati, Suzuki, Kawasaki, BMW and Ariel are just some of the new homes we have found for the FireBox Pro since launching it earlier this year. Whilst the FB-0010 is tailored for the Honda 4 (plug in system without cutting any wires) it seems some of our customers are very skilled at adapting the pickup plate and trigger rotor to a variety of engines. With the easy programming of the box, singles, twins and fours including two stroke applications are all possible with the FireBox. Programming kit is sold separately. 

Speaking with Dean M. (One of our Australian customers) recently, he said that the system was easy for his mechanic to install on his Honda 750 and it fired up nicely for them.
