I am new to the site and have just bought a Twin tec 1005 race ignition for my Mutant 1998 M2 buell and will need a little help with setting it up. I live in rural Thailand and have to do all work my self, but I am no bike mechanic just good at wrecking them.
The engine has a 1250 big bore and Hi comp pistons, Thunderstorm heads, N6 cams, 42 Mukuni, hyper charger,
Anyone that can give me a few pointers on setting the ignition up would be good,
First question whats the difference between single fire ignition and dual fire ? and what does the M2 have

The difference between single fire and dual is that a dual fire, the coil fires both plugs each revolution of the engine. One for the power stroke and the other wasted in the exhaust stroke of the other cylinder.
A single fire ignition fires only the spark for the cylinder in the power stroke. This allows more saturation time for the coil to charge, thus a hotter spark, our Buells have the dual fire setup, simpler, cheaper with one coil, no distributor and less ignition circuitry to go bad.
Hope that Helps

Thanks for the info Dale.
The kit comes with coil, leeds, igntion, can I now run my bike with a single fire ignition up as the set up can be set for both ?

That would be the way to go.

installed the new ignition and switched to single fire ignition, The bike runs smother and pulls a hell of a lot harder and I have only set the static timing at the moment yet the improvement is great
