For those that ask, because they're looking to add a Tachometer.
Here is a topic that I've seen with differing opinions by most everyone. What ignition type is the Road Star? Dual-Fire, Single-Fire.
Does our ignition system fire on the exhaust stroke? Thus giving us Two pulses/fires per complete piston cycle.
Or does it only fire once on the compression stroke? Thus giving us a single pulse/fire per complete piston cycle.
Or perhaps the terminology dual-fire, single-fire is related to how the (a) coil operates, since that's where tachs hook up is on the coil?
Dual fire ignition systems, A single coil would fire cylinder one on compression stroke, then fire cyclinder two on compression stroke. Thus the coil would produce two pulses per two crankshaft revolutions.
And for a single fire system (coil), the coil only fires on the compression stroke.
In single fire mode one coil is connected to the plug(s) of one cylinder only. Each cylinder receives sparks independently and only at the firing point in the compression stroke. Thus the coil would produce 1 pulse per two crankshaft revolutions.
I believe the coil on our R*s fire only on the compression stroke.
Can we as a forum with all the +10 years of R* experience finally
nail this down and post this as a closed subject?
I mean the R* has been out for quite some time now.
I have been going by the statements/posts of some very experienced members here(moderators and bike mechanics). But other senior and experienced R* owners have different answers. Let's get this answered. Please?
