Has anyone else experienced an Ignitech TCIP4 failure recently?
I remember the high failure rate right after these first came out, and how it took quite a bit of time before the problem was traced back to using non-resistor plugs, or mounting the box too close to the coils.
I've had an Ignitech in my Paso for maybe 3 years. (Electrically nearly identical to my '92 900ss) Probably only put 1,500 miles on it in that time. Always used resistor plugs. Box is mounted at least 3 feet away from the coils, in the tail storage area. Bike has developed a bad miss when it warms up, after 15-20 miles. Reinstalling a set of Kokusan BB1105 boxes confirmed it was the box.
I'm hoping this is a fluke, and that not all Ignitech boxes will fail, as I would like to get another but don't want to repeat this problem in 3 more years.
Does anyone know if there were any improvements made to the design since those early boxes?
