cr250 07 programmable ignition??

Recommended Posts

Hey I have been looking for a Programmable Ignition for my cr250 but have only found Ignitions for up to the 01 model??

Is there anything available for the 07 as I want to he able to change Ignition mapping for more bottom end and more use able power

I did find this http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/MSD-Enhancer-Ignition-Honda-CR-125-250-4201_W0QQitemZ330366536365QQcmdZViewItemQQptZMotorcycles_Parts_Accessories?hash=item4ceb614aad#ht_2833wt_960

And some instructions http://www.msdpowersports.com/pdf/frm26113_pn4201.pdf

I really like the idea of being able to work with the power curves and change the mapping as required but I don't know a great deal about it so Please help

Cheers Tim

In my honest opinion..........

Waste of money.

2 stroke = good jetting & aftermarket pipe for power range delivery. (some people go with flywheel weight too)

I feel those give a placebo effect and nothing more (ok, the addition of the CD coil will help). Not to mention if you don't get the timing right, how will you be able to tell if it is the ignition cutting out or the jetting? Both have similar symptoms. Your just adding another unneeded variable to the mix.

On the flip side. I have never known anyone to use this on a smoker, so I am only speaking from my knowledge of a 2 stroke engine, not first hand use of those.

Would be interesting to see if someone has used them. Maybe they're the cats meow.

My $0.02 worth.

Thats kinda interesting. I used to run a msd enhanser on my jetski. (a 2000 yamaha superjet) It actually worked pretty good. Gave the engine a little more snap off idle and pretty much threw the entire rpm range. Also had an increased rev limit.

If you can get it cheap enough might be worth trying. Id really like to try one back to back with the stock ignition.

I know it can be done its just a matter of how much you want to spend I think, I first thought of it when I was watching an Episode of The Reality Of Speed on foxtel it has the Samsung mobile team from a few years back when DV12 was on the cr250 04 I think and they were playing with there laptop on the bike and changing the Power Curve so I started looking cause it would be sweet if you could manipulate the Power Curve to be a bit more useful on the slick tracks..

I know of JD Electronic Ignition that Pro Curcuit are the distrubitors of and I know they have used them on at least a cr125 02 model http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2002-Honda-CR-125R-JD-Electronic-Ignition-Box-CR125-125_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem4a9dfde7a9QQitemZ320478242729QQptZMotorcyclesQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories#ht_2996wt_960

Also found SRS Racing Ignition

Really all I am asking is has anyone ever done this because it can be done and I think it would be a fantastic mod to a very strong motor and giving you more room to play with for differant power curves??

Any help is greatly appreciated

I agree 100% Anything is possible when you have the money. :banana:

I am a big gadget freak, and spent a lot of money on software for my car to tweak it. So I am just curious as to how your imagining this devices use?

All I've seen out there is basically what you have shown, which is a device that only allows you to adjust a pot (Potentiometer) that either advances or retards the timing. There is not real mapping per say.

The team that you saw connecting a laptop probably had several sensors on the bike which monitor data. They may of even had fuel injection. For something to be "Programmable" you're thinking more on the lines of a feedback and control system.

Just trying to get an idea of what you want to do. Not trying to throw a wrench in your idea, because I know it can be done too. It's just a matter of what you want. That will govern how people in here may help you.

Is this what you are thinking?

Example: I want 3 Degrees of advancement at 1500 RPM

:lol:

Yeah kind of I think, I was under the impression that by changing the timming advanced or retard you where changing the power curve or where the meat of the power would be so for a hard pack track you could soften the power hit and for loam or sand you could make it a bit more aggressive I know it works on 2 and 4 strokes but why is there no or very limited products for the 2002-2007 cr250??

Try advancing and retarding the curve you have now manually. Another thing you can do is run av gas it burns slower and takes away some hit. If you advance your timing with the av gas the hit will come back. I do not ever advocate running pump gas but if you do do not advance your timing. If you run race gas play around with your timing to your liking. What's funny I have a buddy that had a dual map ktm he always ran in advanced position and said that the switch was a waist and he rode off road and mx with it.
