Ebeyond2000 ignition: would like to know what the pick up is

#1

Post by mbskeam » Wed Aug 02, 2006 4:28 am

well I got the electronic drop in from ebeyond2000, the quick-start 2000.
it went in in about 45min, checked the timing to the flywheel mark and it was dead on. came with every thing needed,and good clear instrutions, unlike many big name parts....
the bike seams to run real smooth with this, I think my worn cam lobe was starting to make it run kinda funny....burbly,burbly, boop

mbskeam

but I will carry all the points parts, for just in case.
I would like to know what the pick up is??????
anybody? KELL???

There's a thing that slips over the shaft, right? It might have magnets embedded in it. You can take a small screwdriver or something and see if it attracts it. If it's a dual fire system, it would have two magnets not quite diametrically opposed... 157.5 degrees apart; and a sensor that mounts on the plate. If single fire, it would have one magnet in the rotating part and two sensors mounted on the plate at that same oddball angle I mentioned.

If it has magnets in it then it uses a Hall effect sensor mounted on the plate to detect when the magnet passes.
Hall effect is just the name of a kind of sensor that detects a magnetic field.
If it doesn't have magnets, then it uses an infrared emitter and receiver. The popular Mallory breaker uses the infrared system, but I suspect your QuickStart uses Hall effect.

mike, let us know how it works out. i went with the one from kurt@45 partsdepot. it's only got a couple thousand on it now. very easy instal and the less i have to mess with things the better. i always carried an extra set of points and conds. anyway so if it goes south on me i can slap in the points and go. good luck, rich

hplhd1 .......
so is it built the same? got close up pics?
the reason I went with this one was, 2 reasons. shipping time(I needed it) and the shipping costs.
so the price came out the same and I got it in 2 days......

so does it run real smooth at low Rpm's, used to think it was dying when coming up to a stop, but it just purrs along...still tuning the carb and all

mike, i can't post pics for sh!t. if ya go to the site http://www.45partsdepot.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; there is a good pic. looks real similar to the ebeyond. the one i bought was 102 bucks at the time and came real fast. the sumbitch runs good at idle or higher rpm. i just put it in and timed it of the light on the module and havn't touched shit since. i tend to break things better that i can work on stuff so i was real pleased so far with it.
edit- mike if you go to http://www.photobucket.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; i put a pic there. put nuklhd in the search box when you pull up the site. the module is in my black pan in the pics.

I went with the 45 Parts Depot unit, and although I have only around 15 hours on it I am quite impressed. Maybe there was something amiss with my points/condenser set-up but Icouldn’t get a good idle or a smooth engine response when putting along at 25mph like though the neighborhood. Both problems are gone and response is smooth from idle right on up. Timing with the built in LED is a snap and so is installation although I did have a problem getting the base spring and cover bail back on but I suspect that wouldn’t be such a big deal for some one with smaller and less arthritic fingers than mine.

I’m pretty sure it is a “hall effect” unit.

Good rides,

King

I spliced in some cloth covered wire to get the look I wanted, not a stock coil, as the OEM style re pops are JUNK.....

mbskeam,

Per your comment "I spliced in some cloth covered wire to get the look I wanted, not a stock coil, as the OEM style re pops are JUNK....."

I purchased the stock 12v square style from J&P when I did my 6 to 12volt conversion and I believe I may have a problem with the new coil . My motor runs unevenly with a studder at a steady throttle and 1 cylinder is acting up by fouling out. I have to run it on the freeway to clean it out. What is your experience with these aftermarket coils? What other brands/models fit in the OEM mount?

Thanks

well if all you did was change the coil and there other things that one would do during a 6 to 12 volt swap. and it started runnin crappy then, I would suspect the coil.
I have had 3 of the coils.1 died because of me, it was about 10 years old.
the other 2 lasted only about 1 year, both died when I was on my way to a once a year event......
vashon Island run and the snohomish bike show....
so now I run a dyna coil
also check your plug wires, we tend to over look the simple things....LOL

I do have new wires and caps along with new points. I checked for vacuum leaks but have not checked my timing or valve adjustments.


Which model and cost of Dyna Coil are you using with the Quick-start 2000?

Thanks
