FRANKENSPARK!

Sick of Triumph pick-up coils failing every three years at £56 a pop, I've discovered a replacement part with similar specs for £30 from Electrex (who specialise in bike electrics) - and it works! It *does* require 'some user modification' (drill holes to 6mm, connect to OEM wiring - white to black, brown to red) but it produced a spark at the plug on the first attempt! Having to rely on Ducati parts for a spark may seem... how shall I say? Counter-intuitive? 😉 But these are quality parts, the majority of which are made in-house.
