06-13-2012, 4:38 PM
Hey Y'all--- I don't believe I've ever posted anything anywhere like this, but was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on Triumph ignition/electrical systems? I'm a first time owner of a 67 / 71 (71 engine) hardtailed bobber. I'm interested in reliability above all. The bike now is battery less with just a head / tail / brake light. Ive ridden it a bit, but am now having problems with it running. It has a new 16 amp Wassel rotor / stator, and a Sparx battery eliminator, points and a single dual lead coil. I would consider any system, including a battery and electronics / or a magneto. I just want to ride it!!!!! Any Pros and Cons from voices of experience?
