Thorspark?

Hey Guys
Has anyone installed the Thorspark electronic ignition on their Single?

Seems like an easy fix to a dud mag armature as long as the generator is working good. They say it draws just 1/4 amp

Re: Tachometer tribulation

Allan I had 2 of those . The seller sent another when I told him it was defective..The replacement doesn't read accurately either.

Re: Tachometer tribulation

I tried 3 tachs that run off the ignition wire and not one read anything close to the actual rpm on my 53 VHA, VF31 or my 36 ES2..Idle would be close as it reads about 700 rpm ,once underway forget it.
I even wired it up to my 77 Suzuki GT 750 and it was also way off.
Conclusion..waste of money.

Wade I use 3 Bond used for sealing 2 stroke cases.

Any Motorcycle dealer in Canada should carry it or order it.

Re: Nice article in TCMC!!

Just received my issue in the mail Friday..Congrats Steve..
Some of the Cyclones I've seen here in Canada have chrome headlight covers.
I wonder if they added the chrome for certain markets?
