This is a great vehicle dynamics question that essentially has two parts to it: Is the motor able to hit top speed, 120 mph? Is the torque enough to accelerate it to top speed within 5 seconds? The motor in question Power : 1000 W (~ 1.36 hp) Speed : 3200 RPM Torque : 1.91 Nm Something interesting to note here is the apparent discrepancy between ...

2 solutions: (1) Use a tightest fit rubber 'O' rings around the plug - available from http://www.amazon.co.uk/Assorted-Rings-Plumbing-Rubber-Thread/dp/6040360860 - see pink bands on the image below. (2) Use a short length of plastic-coated WIRE or a WIRE cable tie like those small black ones you get around a power cable when you unbox a new appliance ...

A Good Ground All the coils on that bike want are a good ground. If you can find a good spot on the frame to mount them that isn't in the way you are good. Feel free to weld a couple of tabs onto a random convenient spot anywhere on the good iron from that you can. Best of luck.

Certainly plugs vary in their quality and ability to stay put. However, I am certain there are differences in the socket diameters as fitted to different makes of vehicles. My Honda is OK but my Fiat Ducato based campervan will not keep plugs in. The answer is a cylindrical metal sleeve adaptor. I have got one of these which came with some device I ...

As @mikes stated that this depend on the amount of power which is already being drawn on the system. That said, 160A alternator is a fairly large alternator. If you don't have a lot of other things on the system, there should be no issue with the power draw itself. Your amp draw is only going up by 13A at peak draw. A 30A relay is more than enough to handle ...

If you have a typical old school Hot Rod it should be more than enough. Most cars from the 60's and early 70's used alternators that only had an output of 50-75 amps. If you have a large high powered amplifier or some other high load device you have to calculate for that. I don't understand the reference to a 30 amp relay.

I'm not sure if it is everything, but it looks like I had some kind of short (vs break) in one of the ignition coils. My multimeter confirmed this, as did my sense of smell.. Burning plastic is never a good sign, especially under the gas tank. When I pulled that coil the other side started getting a regular spark. Now I'm off to find a set of aftermarket ...

I have two solutions for you, depending on your skill level. The first is using a zener diode to turn on the relay once the voltage is above 12.6 volts. This will energize the relay anytime the battery voltage is above 12.6 volts. You could go as high as 13 volts, but that might turn the relay off under high electrical loads with the engine running. The 12 ...
