The mounting bracket system is pretty trick, It looks greatWell before I start a new thread, I’ll start here as there is a lot of info of where the original jstl kit was started. As stated above I have taken over jstl. Against @x2stroker wishes I will be changing the name to CPI, competition programmable ignitions. The cdi concept from the original jstl was used as a great starting platform to improve on. Thus, the reason for the name change. Different, so it needs a new name. With out getting too specific into the technical aspects of what was changed, some of the original electrical parameters are different. All for the better. Now the stuff that I will talk about, as of now, that has changed to make this kit one of the best ever produced. From a glance, all kits will come pre wired and pre mapped to take way some of the confusion associated with total loss. If you can line up marks on a oem stator plate, you can install this kit. Mass amounts of real world testing was done over the last 2 years, on various engine manufacturers motors to produce these pre programmed ignition curves. Units will come programmed w/ pump gas and race gas curves. The curve switch will not come installed so that a user error can be avoided. With the switch not connected the unit will always resort to map 1, which is pump. These curves are both on the safe side and will work for 98% of riders. This includes all motor sizes. It helps eliminate detonation issues w/ first time users. Pre ignition issues we cannot help with! Static is already verified for the user. Line it up and turn the switch on. You will notice the flywheel does not have timing marks, only to help cut down on overthinkers and ease of install. We did all the hard work for u. 1% are capable of creating their own curve and really start fine tuning their setup to produce the most power. In this case, cable, software and micro degree wheel will be provided. The last 1% of actual tuners will be select dealers that will be given the support and tools needed to build custom curves for specific applications and get competitors every last bit of hp they deserve and need. The programmability of this unit is unmatched and can be so finely tuned no other total loss can compete. Backing plate, pickups, and magnet placement were all changed not only for more accurate timing but also for proprietary ignition performance reasons. No more buying an unassailabled kit, having to send a flywheel off to have lightened or asking for advice of where to set your dip switches. Flywheels are “not” soft 60/61 and come with a thicker ring gear for improved longevity. The key way is machined to precision tolerance to help with strength and reliability that we have lacked in the past with lightweight wheels. Up from there, we go into actual deutsch and oem run/stop connectors. Literally plug and play! Every part used down to even the solenoid, was the best money can buy. Quality fuse holder and waterproof rotary on/off switch included. Bad a$$ coils and wires not only for best performance but also to prevent radio frequencies that can cause misfires. It’s the only way to make a total loss system the most reliable. Yes we use a Hall effect sensor for pick up. Rest assured these sensors that can be prone to failure, due to mechanical issues like bendix coming apart, are cheap to replace. 13$ to be exact. Compare that to magnetic pickups and you will understand what sets us apart. Our concerns were the same as everyone’s! That lead us down this lengthy r&d path! I now have the confidence in this kit to produce it for the public and offer a warranty on the cdi. Obviously modifications or willful errors to the kit will void warranty. Example, you pop the fuse to the brain because your choice of wire routing chafed the wires, and your buddy gives you a 50 amp fuse. The cdi does have protection unlike current competitors units but no electrical part is foolproof. Good news even if the worst case happens the cdi is repairable. We are currently working on packaging, new logo, wiring schematic, disclaimer, instructions and dealer relationships. There will be few that are authorized and capable. This will help us give actual “real” customer support should you need any. Here is another picture although the full release photos will show all parts included and packaging. MSRP will be 1799.95 usd. We understand some may be skeptical and for that reason we will offer first 5 public kits at 1619.95. Upon comparison of what you get, will you understand the value offered with this kit. In the words of the “iceman”, to be the best u have to beat the best! And we did!View attachment 348472View attachment 348473View attachment 348472View attachment 348473
This is what we are after. Plug and Play, thank you for the review buddyI received my kit on Friday! Man is it clean and easy to install. Totally plug and play. Everything is pre-wired and bolted to the plate. The connectors are oem for the start stop switch and the wiring to the pickup has a duetsch connector. To me this is a HUGE benefit for reliability. I bolted everything in and fired it up. No tuning or timing adjustments needed. I'm so stoked. Took the ski out yesterday and it ran flawlessly. Is total loss supposed to be this easy?
