Default Re: Resistor Cap and Resistor Plug Question

Hello again, Stratman.
Look at it this way: Any resistance will effect the available current to the plug's electrodes. Deciding if your plug and cap are enough to adversely effect the plug's ability to fire will only be found through experimentation. You could do mathematical calculations till the cows come home but due to the slight differences in ignition timing that we see in the Chinese 2 strokes determining the ultimate plug/wire/boot configuration is all guess work. Install what you bought and give it a try. If the engine runs're home. If at a later time you want to experiment with lower resistance components, go for it. If you opt for a digital speedometer you might find that the resistance parts will keep you from having problems with it. Good luck. Keep us informed of your progress.
