A bit shocked and deffo disappointed by that.Oh Triumph Twin Power. You sneaky, legally careful devils.
On a whim I bought their "Blue Flame Ignition Coil" to match my other ignition components and because I was having the weird stumble which ending up being an out-of-whack TPS.
I'm futzing with things this morning on the front end swap and decided to install my "fancy" new coil. Which is just a factory Gill unit with a sticker and the "Gill" mark sanded off.
TTP Blue Flame on the left, OEM Gill on the right.
So I essentially paid $80 for a sticker. I'm a little miffed right now, but this has probably already been covered in the forum I didn't do my research carefully. A quick look at the product description on TTP's site shows:
The TTP Blue Flame ignition coils are specifically designed to match the electrical requirements of the Triumph OEM and TTP Fire Starter igniter units. They produce a nice strong spark which is more than adequate for use with a tuned engine as well as a standard engine.
The Blue Flame coils are available with dual high-tension outputs for the Bonneville, T100 and Thruxton (1 x required) and with a single high-tension output for the America, Speedmaster and Scrambler (2 x required).
System matched with the OEM and Fire Starter igniter units.
5% discount on twin coils for the America, Speedmaster or Scrambler
TTP 18 Month Warranty
Well of course they are matched with the OEM. Because they are OEM. Shady shady.
Now before all you TTP fanboys hop on here in their defense, I've been impressed with all their other products that I own (igniter, Airbox removal kit). But this is misleading. Not false advertising, just misleading.
Thanks for your positive comment on my resto' project of a repatriation from your rust belt. Ha!!Wow. Just read through this thread. You have some dedication/stubbornness my friend. Well done on the progress so far!
Should be plenty of post-industrial background opportunities with a move to the Midlands in the UK! Great part of the country (where I grew up) with the friendliest people and some fantastic riding in easy reach. Enjoy!Great thread. Love the photography, especially the post-industrial backgrounds.

It's grim up north! so they say. But on the East Coast of Yorkshire where I am it isn't too bad. The big Northern Cities are worth a visit, I always fly the flag for Manchester, my home town.Rather to the south of what I think of as the Midlands (which I live pretty much in the middle of) - short of post-industrial backgrounds. Handy for the Chiltern Hills and visiting Bletchley Park though. If you want post-industrial, try Wolverhampton - about 50% of it is derelict (cue outraged cries from Wolves dwellers).
