No. It is just the tach acting up while the engine RPM remains normal. Like I said, this does not ALWAYS happen with coil problems, but it is an indication of problems in the primary (low voltage) side of the ignition. ...J.D.

No matter how you deal with replacing the coils you need to check out Sprint Manufacturing. I buy most of my parts there. The shipping cost is negligible and they deliver twice as quickly as my nearest Triumph dealer. Recently it seemed convenient to order an ignition pick up coil from the dealer. I got tired of waiting and ordered one from Sprint which came in four days. I kept the one I ordered from the dealer, which came two weeks later, since it's such a common breakdown part. I've never run the Nology coils but I have heard good things about them.

I delt with Sprint Mfg. once. I needed a cam chain tensioner spring for my old 900 Sprint and they were the only place I could find it at the time. The shipping from GB to Southern California was almost as much as the part. Depends on where you are in the world. No complaints otherwise. ...J.D.
