Which Ignition Coils to use?


We are back from our travels now and caught-up with our orders and work backlog...  pheew...

While we were away we received a number of inquiries about which coils to use with the various Tri-Spark ignition systems so here is a summary.

Engine

Triple
TRI-0002 (no black box)
12-volt, IGC-1012 (3 required) RECOMMENDED
T150, T160, Trident, Rocket 3, Hurricane
Triple
TRI-0002 (no black box)
6-volt, IGC-1006 (3 required) with ballast resistor
T150, T160, Trident, Rocket 3, Hurricane

Points ignition only
All models with 12 volt electrics on points ignition use IGC-1012 except where a ballast resistor is fitted (for example late Norton and Triumph T160). If there is a ballast resistor use IGC-1006.
  
Both of our ignition systems for the triple cylinder bikes (TRI-0002 and TRI-0001) are sequential firing and not a wasted spark system; that is why they are far superior to anything else on the market. Importantly these Tri-Spark kits have different coil requirements than the competitor kits which are wasted spark.   4-volt coils (IGC-1004) are used only for triples bikes that have Boyer and Lucas Rita systems fitted.

Tri-Spark Ignition coils may be ordered on our website products page
