  3. Looked upstream from the coil and no ballast resistor but I opened up the ignition switch/tach/indicator lights box on top of the headlight and found a real mess of wires and connectors touching the housing,insulated them with electrical tape and now I have 12V at the coil.I installed the Harley coil and now there is a nice strong blue spark. Test drive tomorrow.
  4. Thanks guys!The bike has now a Type 3 contact less. I would then try to use the new 2.9 ohms Harley coil with a "Chevrolet" Points Plate.Do we have any feedback on that home-made piece? On a more careful search,I found this link which confirms Yves4640 . http://www.goodkarma...ion_Systems.pdf
  5. Hello guys,can anybody tell me what's this black box under the MT16 tank? It is not electrictly connected to anything. I am in the process of installing a 2.9 Ohm H.D coil under the tank. The bike has Type3 ignition. Question #2: I am getting 8.77 V on the + wire to the coil. Is that sufficient to get a spark? Battery has 12.50V Thanks Roland
  6. Sorry Jim,just came back from vacation.Took it for a ride,stopped,tried to start it again,and it wont do it.I had to get a tow truck. I'll have to check the coil and the electronic ignition.I'll let you know. These machines are unique in many ways,and before buying one I suggest reading what other owners had to say about them.Research these forums for that. In short,they need a lot of tinkering, you have to be mechanically inclined and patient with them,and willing to get your hands dirty. I seldom took it for a long drive,and always made cooling stops every 1/2 hour or so. To ride it home,I would imagine in a few stages,40m/h,using the back roads.It's not a highway bike. Here is one good link: http://www.russianiron.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=14785&st=0
  7. Price includes extras. 2 wheel drive. I am in NE Pa.,the Poconos. Roland
