The real question is why?
Tell us why it’s a bad idea. If this type of stuff is in your wheelhouse, share with us. Dynojet makes them, and people seemed to think it’s needed for something. This is what dynojet claims. Is that not possible? I’m genuinely interested in this stuff.

“Our Coil-On-Plug Kit was engineered to withstand the harshest environments while delivering maximum spark energy. With this kit for your 2020 Kawasaki TERYX KRX 1000, you’ll experience gains in torque, horsepower, and throttle response, improving upon the stock ignition coil and wires by replacing it with a per cylinder coil-on-plug design.

The Coil-On-Plug Kit improves cold and hot starts and provides a snappy throttle response, as well as a smoother idle. Additionally, combustion efficiency is improved and the potential for misfiring is greatly reduced. This leads to improved performance, clean-burning plugs, and yields more miles between fill-ups. If you’re serious about ignition performance for your Kawasaki, this is the kit for you.”

Interesting.. be nice for some reports to see if it’s snake oil or legit.

I installed them on my KRX, I thought it might help with spark plug fouling and low speed surge. Ive put about a 100 miles and everything seems good.
so have you felt more response? And did the surge and plug fouling stop? What other items have you upgraded on your KRX? Or is this the only thing? I k so you said it’s only been 100 miles, but that should give you at least a little feedback I would think.

I have the MBRP exhaust . Its been running good no surge or plug issues. Dont realy feel any power increase.

Sure I’d love to. Plenty of experience with hot coil plugs. I’ve installed them on my vehicles and were deemed worthless on the dyno compared to stock. So I stopped buying garbage like this.
Companies will juice up any product with fancy wording to try to sell you a product. That’s their goal through marketing. I just read a user below that he has felt “ no power gain”. To add to my credibility. What I’ve also learned in this market is there are companies making products for a non existent problem. Just like the shock tower reinforcement tabs. Complete marketing BS to simply take your order and pocket a few dollars.

I agree... I would have liked to see the Shock mounts marketed differently. How and where I ride there is a good probability I’ll roll mine eventually. That’s how the Shock mount gives, in rollovers. But it would be worth while to me to be able to limp back after a bad rollover vs having a torn mount that prevents it.

yes I understand marketing is revenue. I was curious if it did any help. I think for the price the PM3 does the same things these are claimed to fix. Im not a car guy, so I’ve never got into using these items. This seems more like what racing guys would require for highly tuned high horsepower engines.

Almost all newer cars run coil over plug ingnition systems,It does away with the spark plug wires and is a cleaner under hood look. It's just a spark nothing more. No magic horsepower gains. I got them because of spark plug issues and to do away with the two lawnmower style ignition coils and the 2 foot long spark plug wires.
Good feedback

I have input i have input....Me next!.....lol

Ok so yes in theory and using math and a couple of high end recording device you can see that the sticks to create a more dependable spark curve, have slightly more amperage, and a slightly cleaner composition chamber with reduced exhaust. They also also don't have the frequency loss because they don't have to run the longer distance and this could be important in a high heat application or overcrowded electronic engine bay. This does not mean you will notice anything on a stock machine. These are on a lot of cars now from factories because they have to pass a very strict emissions standard in California and they don't want to do a design twice so they do everything to California standards except where they really save build time and money. They do work in my experience, as a preventive measure in boosted applications much better then the older style. In superchargers and turbo applications you want accuracy in your spark and a cleaner chamber if you can get it. Thats why every boosted factory car will have them now. You don't want unspent fuel firing the next time. If you boost or high compression heads with race gas were accuracy and reliability are required then go for them.

On the whole shock tower brace thing, it is not a sell tactic or fiction that there is more support required around the mount points. We have some serious large diameter tubes everywhere on our rides, but if you have chopped any of the metal tabs or bent any of the metal on the framing then you might be as surprised as I was when I realized that Kawi set the standard of mild in mild steel. I am still surprised at how much slag there is around every weld and by how many times I found a spot that cut my hand that I hand to grind smooth. With this much weight, the shock tabs should have used 1/4-3/8 thickness for the mounts and the mounts should have been wider on the down portion. I will be adding a tower brace first until I can weld some washers in there. I tend to ride at a good 30+mph 40% of the time Plus I do miss some shat every now and then and take a rock a little hard, blow through a turn off the trail, or take the whoops to hard out of rhythm and end up slamming hard, so I will take the little bit of extra beef as insurance and peace of mind.

For some people things are gimics because of how they ride, like BOBX2, I don't expect Bob to be needing anything outside of stock because he is a slower paced scenery drivere who like to play in the rocks and only needs a skid plate. Thats cool his machine will last long time. But, for those of us who tend to push our abilities a little and drive it like we are Ivan Stewart we might need some extra things. There are guys cracking their CannedHams on the front shock tower all the time and then there are guys who have never had a slight crack or bent anything on their rides. It depends on you, so do you and be respectful of others including some of our vendors (not all though).

RANT COMPLETE! Take care yall :ROFLMAO:
