Hi oldskoolpulsar,

Are you converting the whole electrical system to 12V?

DC cdi coil

Post  oldskoolpulsar on Fri 27 Nov - 19:35

yes i am. I am thinking about swapping out the ignition coil for my spare lighting coil if it will fit in the ignition coil place! And providing a 2 coil AC solution. my friend who is really handy with electronics is going to have a look and chat with me over the weekend.

he was the one who suggested converting the ignition to DC cause of the above modification.

I dont see the point of changing the ignition side, it works perfectly as standard & you would be faced with having to construct a new CDI unit.
Its only the lights that are under par & Franks (3hundredspartans) solution seems the best option.

Totally agree with John and he beat me to it. I don't see why you need to go to all the effort to convert the ignition, as it already works perfectly as it is. I doubt you will not notice any difference between 6V and 12V. Like my post, all you need to do is convert the lighting side, something the Townmate lacks strength in. The Townmates electrical system is in two parts and they are seperate which gives you the ability to convert the lighting side without effecting the ignition side. It is an easy conversion but sourcing the correct components is the challenge. If you need more detail, please see my post or send me a message as I am more than happy to help. After the conversion, the difference is like night and day with the lights and indicators.

DC cdi coil

Post  oldskoolpulsar on Sat 28 Nov - 4:58

i got 4 townmates, and 6 engines, I just fancied a bit of experimentation.

I saw your post on using the quad bike coil from i think its called a raptor.

I just fancied taking a different route. I know there is zero advantage to using a DC cdi.

But was willing to use a DC cdi to get some more AC coils into the stator so i can run some real serious front lighting.

I have been unfortunate enough about 8 years ago to break my shoulder and collar bone on a 6v townmate at night, cause i could not see the deer!

this is low on my priority list, just a idea thats been knocking around in my head for a while.

I etched the pcb for this a while ago http://www.transmic.net/en/Tiny2313.htm

And fancied using it for this project.
