    Hello,
    I have searched a bit and I have found answers just not specific answers, so....

    I have a 96 Sprint 900 converted to CRK Cafe Racer (3 into 1, custom intake, severe weight loss) and Im starting to get a low rpm stumble then it picks up fine. As I have the 23 year old OEM coils I am thinking of a stick conversion.

    I know the Thunderbird 1600/1700 and the TT600 coils are plug and play. Those are a little hard to come by , but the Daytona 675 sticks are a dime a dozen and everywhere. Does anybody know if they would plug in, or is there a voltage thing I dont know about?

    Also Yamaha R6 sticks are all over the place, they are cheap enough I could buy a set and just see.

    Thanks and any ideas will help.

    I'll keep you posted...I popped for a set of 600TT coils (40 euro) and a new set of denso connectors for tidy installation (14 euro). I'll let you know next week after they arrive if it was as easy as they said it would be. it looks straight forward but nothing ever is.

    Cannot comment on tt600 coils as not what i use. Btw i use new coils. You will need to seal the coils to stop corrosion and also seal the plug tunnel. The wrong coils can fry your igniter, just go carefully make sure you connect the coils the right way round too.
    Regards.
    Paul.

    Thanks Paul, I am a little worried, I found this informative thread on fitting TT600 sticks to a T300 Thunderbird sport on the other forum...

    https://www.triumphrat.net/hinckley-classic-triples/505458-tt600-coils-on-tbs.html

    it went into great detail and even some analysis. If anybody sees a red flag and would like to save me..we have about 4 days before delivery of parts

    If interested, the connectors are listed a ford product for 8 of them 13 bucks
    https://www.amazon.com/MOTOALL-Igni...ang+Pigtails.&qid=1563787726&s=gateway&sr=8-4

    The grommets are a V8 product also, as per the thread just trim the bottom 1/2 inch off and perfect fit

    OK Kiddies,...after all the forum surfing and all the articles and all the experts on the internet (some of them truly are experts and a fabulous resource for a mortal such as myself) I have come to the conclusion that the TT600 stick coils are just fine. There are many T300 bikes out there with several thousand miles on TT600 coils with no issues.

    I did it, my rubber grommets have not arrived yet but I fitted what I had to get the wiring out the way and it was very easy and very cheap. I have a total of 45 euro tied up in conversion to stick coils and the bike runs great on the table, I cant get any street time til I swap my jets (another story for another day) that should arrive tomorrow .

    For what it is worth, the triumph part number crossed over to this kawasaki unit, which can be purchased new from $28 each

    https://www.rmstator.com/en_ww/produ...n-coil-rm06083

    I might research this company and see what they are about, a fellow could put together a set using new components wiring and all for less than $100

    Nobody asked for an update, but I won't let that stop me...everything sounded pretty good, so I went for a ride and it was pretty darn good, then I started to run a little off, couldn't put a finger on it but felt like only running on two cylinders intermittent . I panicked and just knew I toasted my ingniter. I decided to go ahead and change my jets and adjust the floats etc etc etc...

    Started her up and I was only hitting on one cylinder, now I am convinced I broke something expensive. I broke out the infrared thermometer and saw only #3 was firing, 1 and 2 were cold. Started the swap coil, test spark and repeat process, plugs were gross from all the rich running but everything fired, all three in every combo. whaaaat????

    decided to go back into carbs and found the rubber tip of a needle seat had broken off and blocking fuel, and the float was jammed shut on another, so thats why #1 and #2 were not firing off, no fuel. remedied everything and she fired right up and ran very smooth. Imagine that. then it started to rain, so perhaps tomorrow this can be road tested and truly finished.

    then I'll check back after 500 miles or so to see if my igniter survives

    Ok My Dudes, I have run 4 trouble free tanks of fuel through the bike and she runs fantastic, I can say that these coils work just fine on the old 900 T300's and anybody facing a game of musical coils should make the MOD. It was cheap and easy, all he parts are readily available and dirt cheap. I am going to declare...CASE CLOSED

    Stick coils are defo way to go. Not just because i do the kits lol. I cant afford to sell unknown coils thats why mine have to be new.
