Replacement TCI unit.....

I just ordered the "Sparker TCIP4" programmable TCI ignition unit from Ignitech. You program the unit via a serial connection to your laptop. With this unit you can test out different advance curves and then save 'profiles' that can be called up and stored in the TCI box. It also has a series of I/O points for throttle position, rev. limiter, shift light and so on..... (if you want to use any of these functions.) The unit cost 146 euros...... around $200 delivered. Here is a link: http://www.ignitech.cz/english/tcip/tcip.htm

we want to hear how it works on your bike first... but on a side not.. I use the same ignition on my CX500 and love it. If any body else isintersted in one of these units, they do a group buy where they can be had for about 120 bucks (US) shipped. my CX forum just bought $10,000 worth of them.

Only prob I see with this is most Laptops today arn't coming w/Serial port connectors. Must be an old design I would think? Otherwise it would have a USB connector. My Power Commander III on the HD has a USB connector and that's 7 yrs old!
Just sayin.....

My Latitude D620 has a serial port, so no big deal for me.......
Ignitech claims there is some issue with electrical noise with the bike running, and that is why they don't use a USB port.....
