the igniter for this year has 3 parts based on the vin.
T1290069 is the part number for my bike It is a fairly large box.
Does anyone have one of these or know where to get one as all the OEM supply chains are empty.
Has anyone else had issues with this?
Is it possible or how difficult is it to use the newer part# on the Higher Vins for this bike?

There are 2 very different looking boxes, my 2000 Tbird had the slim one which works OK but was changed by the previous owner. They both have the same plug but I am unable to confirm if the ignition curves are the same.
I'm now running the Czech aftermarket unit which also works fine.

Hi
In case of need a new igniter, there is a small company Ignitech in Czech rep. (Electronic for motorbikes - IgniTech Přelouč) dealing with units - just let them know the bike specifiction.They send it set just for your bike. There is a thread on triumphrat forum, where you can download improved setting... I have one bought last year , when I thought my stock igniter had gone, but it hadnt, so now I have it just in case and to play with while setting iddle mixture to see rpm.(on notebook you can see your rpm, change advance diagram..but as I mentioned I downloaded from triumphrat forum final seting ), you get it with a right connector just to push in and ride. Price (if I remember ) not more then 150 Euro)

Just wondering does this part go bad very often?
