Electrex World Ignitions

Electrex World Ignitions

There are many electronic ignition manufactures on the market today, choosing which ignition set-up you need for your vintage British motorcycle can be very confusing and also challenging

Today I would like to introduce a newer type of electronic ignition on the market that can be fitted to almost any Triumph, BSA or Norton motorcycle (and others) at ease 


Allow us to introduce Electrex World ignitions

 

Who / what is Electrex World?

Logo Electrex World

 

Electrex world ignitions is a UK-based ignition manufacturer that has been producing ignitions for all makes, and models of motorcycles for over 25 years...

With a vast and constantly growing catalog Electrex World Ignitions main goal and focus is to offer modern ignitions that can be fitted to vintage British motorcycles without modifications - simply a bolt-on direct fit 

Approx 90% of Electrex World ignition parts and supplies are made in the heart of England which means they know "British" motorcycles and there unique quirks!

Features

CDI Box

 BSA B40 with an Electrex World CDI, regulator and a 2MC Lucas capacitor

Electrex world ignitions use a modern CDI (capacitor discharge ignition) system as the main form of firing 

Using a CDI ignition allows for a stronger spark, precise timing and an overall reliable unit  

Electrex World units are included with a rotor and trigger fitted directly off the crankshaft (in the primary cover) which allows the most accurate form of timing... no backlash, no gears, no advance units

Here are more features that Electrex World ignitions have to offer

  • User programmable rev-limiters 
  • Combined stator, rotor and pick-up units 
  • Included regulators, coils, leads, and connectors 
  • No battery required on all ignition system (self sustained)
  • And more.

 

All units come included with literally everything you need for your vintage British motorcycle making it a practical and an affordable alternative 

Using Electrex World ignitions on models that original had points in the a timing means you can ditch you original coil, stator, rotor, advance unit, rectifier, diode and battery as our new kits will replace everything

Best applications

Triumph T90 Road Racer

Triumph T90 race machine fitted with an "Electrex World" ignition system

I highly recommend Electrex World ignitions for most vintage British motorcycles regardless of application

Here is a list of applications where I recommend this unit

  • Flat Track bikes
  • Road Race bikes  
  • Trails bikes
  • Motorcross / Enduro bikes
  • Choppers / Bobbers
  • Road bikes

 

Electrex World ignitions have 2 major types of units that feature a lighting stator and a unit that is strictly for off road or racing purposes (no lightning) 

These units are great for replacement the old Lucas "ET" ignition system that have always been known to be troublesome..

Electrex World Ignitions

 

Classic British Spares not only sells Electrex World ignitions but we also use them on our own motorcycles and customers

Our most recent project (1965 BSA B40 Enduro Star) featured an Electrex World ignition to replace the original Lucas ET ignition

Easy to install, no mods, quick and easy timing and starts on the first kick about 95% of the time . Without this unit the BSA B40 build would have been more expensive and not as reliable

    Hi all, I purchased an Electrex world system for my Norton Dominator. Very disappointed with the alternator output at low revs, causing the lights to barely glow at night and the indicators to not work whilst waiting at traffic lights etc. Several emails to the manufacturer produced no replies. If riding at night, consider this aspect. The ignition side stops working for no apparent reason occasionally and then comes This only happens when you stop and try to restart, it hasnever failed whilst riding.
    I would have liked feedback from the factory but this did not happen so they have now missed out on sixfurther upgrades to date.
