How to install dyna s electronic ignition?
« on: December 29, 2005, 10:48:58 AM »
I just got a Dyna S Electronic ignition off of Ebay (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=4594674287&fromMakeTrack=true) -

* how do I install it? Do I just take off the points plate & fix on the dyna s?

* Do I need the coils?

* Where do these wires on the end attach to?

* Also do I need to readjust anything after I install it or should it be good to go?

 I can figure things out pretty quickly so I guess I can look at that photo & do it but if anyone can post a step by step, that would hep for sure. Thanx!

Now the question is is it likely I will have to adjust the timing or anything else?

I just set the initial timing and then put the dyna s on and it fired right up and works fantasic, don't have to mess with points anymore.  so no, not really.  there is an outside chance you may have to mess with the advance mechanism, but I did not have to.

ok in the manual it is says something about a "splice connecttor" which I do not have.

"Locate 2 ignition coils. there is black/ white wire coming from each coil to a common junction in the wire harness. these wires carry the switched 12 volts to the coils. using the SPLICE CONNECTOR PROVIDED (do not have this), attach the separate red wire included in the kit to the black/ white wire that goes into the coils..."

Well how do i connect all this without the "splice connector"?

I believe the splice connector they refer to is the exact same type you can get at an autoparts store. Although, many folks are in favor of soldering these junctions, rather than using a splice connector.

the dyna s needs 12v on it to work. the stock points have blue and yellow wires that have bullet connectors on them. the dyna s has smaller connectors, but a gentle squeeze on the bikes connectors will sort that out. the dyna comes with a dodgylock splice connector, which works for a while, until it corrodes. best to get the 12v from the brake switch with a soldered splice. it will be switched and is conveniently located. the red wire on the dyna draws next to nothing, (powers the transistors) ,its the blue and yellow wires doing the work(switcing the coils)
heatshrink with glue inside is available from electronics shops and works well. i use normal heatshrink over the twisted and soldered joint, then a touch of silicone around it, and then carefully side the heatshrink over it. shrink and the silicone will seal it all. bombproof.
i have posted here about splice connectors here before- they have their place, but it isnt on a motorcycle. crimp connections serve well (using the right tools), but unless you can do it as well or better than the factory, go for solder and heatshrink. tape will last approx 3 weeks.
