Ignitech price

Postby PB » Tue Aug 07, 2018 9:18 pm

I've just been quoted £180 from WCW for a stator rewind which I nearly choked on!!
So was wondering the cost of an ignitech instead.
I cant seem to find a price on the ignitech site.

Oh, you’ll want “Price Lists Units” and the model is DC-CDI-P2.

Installation if you’re curious:

Unfortunately the Ignitech prices have increased due to BREXIT. Previously the £ to euro exchange rate was around 1.35 to 1.5 and now it's 1.12. With costs of paying in euros overseas I could only get and exchange rate of 1.06 and that was with Paypal. This means that an Ignitech price has increased from just over £100 to around £145.
Hope this doesn't start ww3

See half way down he talks about burning out windings so you wont be able to return from using an ignitec to using a CDI......I think this happened to some people i after testing out an ignitec....just be warned.

Ignitech are aware of this problem and supply connections which earth something or other to prevent this from happening. I would have to dig out their instructions for more details but it's only a matter of connecting certain colours together.

The paragraph referencing that is about installing the connector which puts a dummy load across them which should prevent that from occuring... when I did that install writeup all of the new Ignitechs seemed to be coming with that connector so that may be a moot point with a current model.

Have you considered Rae-San ignition upgrade?

If you don't mind dropping the motor the Rae San Full Hall Effect kit is quite good... does not require the old high and low speed pickups, which the Ignitech still uses.

Hi Pete, I've got a brand new unused Ignitech. Complete with (improved) wiring harness.

I'm looking for £100 for it.

Thanks Graham, I'll keep that in mind. I'm looking at checking out some local companies first after a heads up from a mate, I' ll keep y'all posted if I get any luck.

Pete, Take up the offer on the Ignitech as its £130+ on the new group purchase price which is good value. The member selling the device is a trusted long term member that can be trusted and I don't think that you will buy it cheaper. Mike in France usually does the deals but exchange rates are on the slide at the moment so new price will be high. It's a Gift.

Am I right in thinking that you still need a good charging system on the stator to use an ignitech?
The ignitech replaces only the blue and white wires?
So if my stators charging system is buggered an ignitech would be no use?
Thanks, Confused of Devon :? :?

If it isn't charging, an ignitech won't cure that. The three yellow wires are for the charging circuit, producing AC to the voltage regulator.

If that side is working, then an ignitech will work without using the blue wire and white wire.

On the CX engine, partial stator failure is indicated by the engine refusing to rev much above 5,000 rpm (if the high circuit (blue wire)has failed) or below 5,000 rpm (if the low circuit (White wire)has failed).

Hope that helps.
