most triple ignition systems are now approaching 30 years of age we are finding
more and more component failures. Often, even though the systems are producing a
spark we find that the alternator and ignition units have a lower output
than the original design specifications.
At RBís we can test, repair or
restore your old ignition units and alternators.
Ever wonder what happens when one fails? Well, as this H2 ignition
rectifier unit on the test bed shows - it can easily cause a fire!
The actual ignition units (below) are even more prone to failure
and causing a fire :
A VERY common problem on H2's nowadays is that the ignition rectifier
does not pass enough voltage to produce a high power spark from the coil, we
spent years testing units with the genuine factory test equipment until we
discovered that units can pass the factory test but are far below power when
put on our own dedicated H2 ignition test bed. A bike will run with a poor
rectifier unit but because of the weaker spark produced by the coils it will
be down on power.
We test all units before and after restoring / replating them.
