HONDA CB 650 / 750F / 900F / 1100F / GL 1100 SPARK UNIT SET

Download APPLICATIONS: HONDA CB650/CB750F/CB900F/CB1100F 4 CYLINDER CONTENTS: • TWO SPARK UNIT MODULES • TWO CABLE TIE ADHESIVE MOUNTING BASES • FOUR LARGE CABLE TIES These units are replacements for the OKI MPS-200 Spark Units, or equivalent make (e.g. NEC). They are intended to work with the original pulse generators, mechanical advance and ignition coils. These units do not incorporate advance/retard. WARNING: RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK ALWAYS TURN OFF BEFORE WORKING ON THE SYSTEM BEFORE FITTING, PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY, INCLUDING THE NOTICE ON PAGE 8. Good quality resistor plug caps should be fitted to the h.t. leads (e.g. NGK/DENSO 5K resistor type); these are standard equipment on most machines. Alternatively, resistor spark plugs can be used. Attempting to run the system without resistor type caps and/or plugs will result in excessive radio frequency interference (r.f.i.), which may cause bad running, misfiring and loss of ignition. Carbon fibre leads may be used, but for reliability we recommend copper or steel cored h.t.… Read More

If the voltage exceeds 18 volts for five seconds for code B1325, then other electronic systems protect themselves and shut down. It has been found that this voltage increase is caused by an interaction between the alternator and the ignition coil/module assembly.… Read More
