TBS Igniter

Hi all,

Apologies as there are quite a few posts on this subject but I haven't found the exact answer Im looking for.

The igniter on the TBS is toast. I can't find a replacement T1290063 anywhere. I have picked up from other posts that there is the aftermarket option and I'm weighing that up....seems a good way to go.

However can anyone confirm before I do that if a T1290060 or similar will work instead or will the timing be so far off it'll run like a brick?

Thanks

I e heard about the ignitech igniter and people speak highly about it. I think @IrlMike even has a map (setting chart) for it. It's important to check heather you have a 10 pin or 18 pin igniter.

Search for ignitech and maybe you'll find some useful posts

I have the ignitech igniter and it works very well. If your bike is modded, you can raise your rev limiter and adjust some other parameters. Shipping from Czech Republic is relatively quick as well.

Part number looks to be for the 10 pin igniter. If you are interested in staying OEM, I have a spare already boxed (had been sent to Ovni for his diagnostics). Shoot me a PM if interested

I wish someone had a 10 pin ignitech that I could borrow to see the difference.

I'd highly recommend switching to IgniTech too. Consider upgrading everything else in the ignition system while you're at it, you will definitely notice the difference! Here's the list I was running on the Legend with great results...

Programmable Ignitor Box
PN: SPARKER TCIP4

Bought from: IgniTech (Czech Republic)
http://www.ignitech.cz/en/vyrobky/tcip/tcip.htm
Sales: ignitech@ignitech.cz
Sales Rep: blanka.vasova@ignitech.cz

Once you have the box, install the programming software on your computer from their website. Then you will be able to upload The IrlMike Map file I attached. You can push that map to the box using a USB to Serial Converter. If you don't have one they can be found online fairly easily (Search PN: TU-S9). You'll need to install the Ignitor Box to the TBS, turn the ignition key to On (without starting it) then attach the Serial Converter to your computer for it to accept the map upload. The Ignitor will work just fine right out of the box but I did notice a faster throttle response after I uploaded the map.

Nology Hotwires Spark Plug Wires Triumph 3 Cylinder

QTY: 1 SET

Bought from: New Level Motor Sports

Word of advice on the Hotwires: Slowly cut away the excess rubber on the outer part of the rings until you get a good seal with solid contact to the spark plug. See link for pic reference: http://www.triumphrat.net/hinckley-c...-question.html

Lastly since you're upgrading the ignition system I would suggest buying NGK Iridium Spark Plugs (PN: DPR8EIX-9) if you haven't already.

If you instead get the DCPR8EIX-9 plugs (Same exact plug except they have a 16mm hex) you'll find them easier to install if you don't have the factory plug socket..

Thanks for the help guys.

My mate is actually looking to sell the bike and we've managed to source a working original pretty cheap but if he were keeping it I think the Ignitech sounds ideal. I did get a quote off them and I've read stories on here of them taking a while to reply but they were really quick getting back to me.

Thanks again.

They were quick to reply to me, and very quick to ship. DHL did a great job, too. From the time I first contacted Ignitech, I had my igniter in a week. Not bad from Czechoslovakia to St. Louis.

If you don't end up restoring the bike and it's a 10pin i'll buy it off you Charlie

The bike is definitely going back together. No selling of parts here.
