Stick Coil Mod for Carbed Blades

Post by lambchops on Thu 06 Dec 2012, 12:00

What do you chaps think to this mod, seems like a great idea to modernise the old blade coil setup?

Looks like a great mod to me. I've been having poor spark problems with my RRW all this year, so better sparks at a reasonable price would be great!

Stick coil???????

Direct coil which also incorporates the suppressor cap is an improvement on the old set up which lost an enormous amount of electrical power via the HT and suprressor caps. Having a direct coil would optimise the electrical charge for individual plug creating a better quality spark.

I did a bit of reading up about this a year or so back, something at the back of my mind is saying that the sticks have to match the originals..I did have wiring in diagrams somewhere, I'll have a look and see if i still have all the bumf about doing this..

Its from a 2007 blade might be a bit longer than the supressor cap from a CDI blade.

It's in issue 19, May 2012. Page 88 shows the wiring diagram, it was done on a GPZ 750.

I have just done this mod and it's a piece of piss! If you have a look in the link that was posted early on in the thread the wiring changes are detailed in there. I'm using 99 r6 coils, fit perfectly and should work a treat. A friend of mine fitted stick coils to his f2 race outfit that was powered at the time by a full race 919 blade motor and he saw a few bhp increase as well as it being slightly smoother.
It's worth doing but make sure you check the resistance of your original blade coils and then check the resistance of the stick coils. Double the resistance of one of the stick coils should equal the resistance of one of your original coils
