I found some nice NGK 5K resistor plug caps that are black with no logo. Very very very waterproof. Part # TB05EMD. I have a pair on my Commando with Pazon Altair.
My TriSpark does not appear to have failed, only my troubleshooting failed.Did you actually confirm the TriSpark failed? Or did you just ditch it and try something else?
With a one kick start, I ran my Norton P11 about 40 miles to a meeting. Let it sit 3 hrs. 2 kicks to start (15 people watching) and 40 miles home.
So my issues must have fuel contaminates or particles(rust), loose wires, bad connections, 5K plug caps vs 10K, incorrect float levels, or something else?
I thought my problem was bad ignition since the plugs were black sooted....and the issue came on after several 100 mile outings with no issues.
And the fact I could find no small particle issues anywhere.
So my original TriSpark is still in service and working fine. I will recommend 5K caps however. Maybe 5K resistor plugs and no res caps.
I did receive my new "CHAMPION" caps as pictured above.
Wondering what series is your engine and how deep you went on your rebuild?I cut the length of the drain plug down to about .75 of an inch to prevent it from hitting the end of the camshaft.
