Ignition goodies

12 posts in this topic

Hello all, I work for MSD Ignition's and we are looking to expand more into the Power Sports catagories with our product line. As many of you might already know, we are a major manufacturer of ignition products that are used in almost every category of automotive racing as well as many performance street applications. We also manufactur some motorcycle ignition products but these are mostly limited to top level drag race applications. We are looking to expand our product line to include all motorcycle applications (dirt and street) as well as quads. The bottom line is we need product ideas. Basicly anything that involves electronics (Not just ignition products) are what we are interested in. We obviously have some ideas on what we will make but really look forward to outside input from other people who ride. Please take this opportuniy to let us know what kind of electronics products you would like to see. Lets hear your ideas guys.

Thanks

Mike

of course the cdi's and the stators i dont need the 200 watt ones either i dont ever plan on putting 3-4 headlights on my piece, at a reasonable price of course, you can get a stator rewound for 87.00 bucks so why try and sell a replacement for 130.00 :)

a cdi with a few mods would be nice. different timing curves and higher rpms

and a spec sheet to see the improvement and where they will be improved

i hope to see msd in the future in the dirt section of the parts book :)

something similar to iCAT. but less than $200. like maybe $50-100. cdi box would be good. stator, improved lighting.

I havent done anything to mine yet. It will certainly become an experimental subject at some point. Years ago I tried a Answer Roost Boost (Anyone remember those) on another XR. We cut one open and if I remember correctly it had a total of two components (A resister and a capacitor). When we looked at it on a scope it slightly altered the timing curve. Seat of the pants reality was that you could actually feel a change for the better but it was very subtle. You had to very familiar with you machine to feel the change. We have to be careful to keep if safe but given the capability to make slightly larger timing changes could bring better results. Especially at higher altitudes. We are way early into this project though, and have a lot of experimenting to do.

Great ! Thanks for the roost boost knowlegde. I was wandering the thing . Keep me informed , I like the idea of possibilities. Only if it is safe and not going to burn a hole thru piston . How do factories map out there curves when making an engine ? Some cars have anti knock sensors and thus correct the timing advance. right ? Does this advance spark to max with conditions including fuel quality ?

Because your $87 rewind doesn't include a rewind of the ignition poles.

the 87 dollar rewind was for the ignition side of my stator the lighting side was working just fine

my light on mine is just fine i even have a little better light for street use and the stock stator lights it just fine

but everyone riding preferences are so different that i couldnt justify paying extra for something i dont need i do hardly any riding at night i think i have done it only a few times not by choice

well 12 bucks was for shipping there and back. i hope thats not to much to fix the ignition side to be repaired. it had only 73 ohms resistance when i got it back,was way out there when i sent it off. is there anther place that can do this kinda of repair cheaper?
