Commando Tri Spark Ignition ‘New version’

Manufacturer: Tri Spark

Description: In the past cNw had not found an ignition system that we wanted to offer for sale since we didn’t feel that the quality of them was up to our standards. We have now found a unit that fills that void. Made in Australia, this ignition is extremely advanced yet simple in its design. Tri Spark has had years of experience developing some of the most technically advanced ignitions on the market and this system for the British Twins is as good as it gets. High precision, zero maintenance, extremely compact and reliable are some of the highlights that makes this ignition the one to use. The system does not have an external control box that is hard to find a suitable location for. It hooks directly up to your coil.


  • Easy starting without ‘kick back’
  • Superior running
  • Simple installation and wiring
  • Quality construction
  • Very compact, no external control box. The whole unit is housed inside the points cavity.
  • Accurate timing
  • High Spark energy
  • Anti Knocking
  • Idle stabilization
  • Low power drain
  • Maintenance free
  • Static timing LED

NOTE: The Tri Spark will not function with two 12 volt coils in parallel. Use either stock type 6 volt coils in series or a single 12 volt coil like the one we offer


cNw part # 0704-01     This is the counter clock wise unit that will fit all Commandos that has the ignition mounted at the end of the cam, under the ignition cover.

Price $  309.95
