V-twin ignition system
« on: March 13, 2010, 07:24:50 PM »
Does the Howell V-twin have 2 separate ignition systems, one for each cylinder? If not, how are the cylinders timed from one Hall trigger?
Thanks

The V2 uses two completely independent ignition systems - one for each cylinder.  So, it requires two ignition modules, two coils, two magnets and hall sensors.  Obviously one battery will suffice.
