    I was thinking, get a metal elbow pipe, put it on the end of the muffler, so the exhaust is directed out to the side, then you can put the sparkpluf on the elbow pipe so you dont drill a hole through the pipe and end up ruining it. This means the flames will go out to the side, so you dont burn your ass, of more importantly, burn the bike

    I'll let you know if this works or not
    Hopefully get a roo racing pipe too

    Unfortunatly no. It's another one of my ideas that had to be scrapped/delayed due to lack of money/skill/time

    Good blueprint, it's a shame I don't really understand electronics yet

    LOL... That blue print is really the easyest you will get. It has a fuse for overload protection. Relay to switsh the coil on. (Coil to make the spark)

    The capacitor is there to create a spark every few milli seconds like on a normal ignition system.

    If you shop arround you can get this running for around $30-$40...

    What's the difference between the Toggle Switch and the Relay then?

    And the 3 lines on the ends of some wires is the ground right? Which is actually the bikes Frame?

    Toggle switch is a normal on of switch.

    I think of a relay as a electrical switch. if you give it volts it will turn the switch to on.

    A few reason for using it:

    Safety, If it does not get power the switch/relay turns of.

    Relays can usually handle higher power sources.(Like the high amps needed to run a coil)



    The 3 lines are ground or negative. You can ground it on your frame. Just make sure your bike is negatively grounded. (frame = -)

    Your starter is an example of a circuit that uses a relay to switch on the high powered starter motor.

    I don't think I will use it with my eyes on the road,your ass might just not make it.

    I am sure you can make it portable so they won't notice it when it goes for a WOF.

    I am just wondering what facial expression you will get from the person inspecting you flame spitting bike at VTNZ.... LOL
