    Dynatek 2000 Dyna S ignition

    G'day
    Have been looking at these Dynatek ignition systems.
    I see a few people are using the Dynatek coils. I have been looking at the Standalone Dyna S system Or the Dyna 2000 kit system. with a set of the new coils as well

    The Dyna S looks pretty much plug and play. install and set timing then ride.
    The Dynatek 2000 is a bit more involved
    The Dyna 2000 kits i have looked at for 1100 Kats. come with 2.2ohms coils I was under the impression the 3ohms coil was the 1 for the Kats.

    Has anyone had any experience with the Dyna S or the Dyna 2000 are they any good?
    Do I really need the Dyna 2000 or will the Dyna S and 3ohm coils do the trick ?

    Cheers Simon

    I run a Dyna S and 3ohms coils on my stock 1000 with great successes.
    If you're running a modified engine the 2000 kit may be a better option.

    If your Kat is stock i.e. rev counter etc - just use the Dyna S system with stock coils. That way you also don't need to find anywhere to fit the 2000 ignition module (big blue box)

    It may just be coincidence - but I now have quite a few sets of the grey Dyna coils that break down under temperature - replaced them with stock coils of unknown history/origin and they run just fine - even at high temp. It seems you get around 5 years or so out of the grey coils

    The 2000 offers a stable digital out, various advance curves etc which is handy but I would still only run this ignition with stock coils.

    I have yet to try the Dyna mini coils - Dale has these on his Kat - but he has only just started using them so the 5 years is - well 5 years away.

    There is a special connector plug on the 2000 module to harness - I have quite a few of these - so if you get a 2000 ignition without wiring harness I can help supply the connector block/terminals.

    Cheers.

    Thanks for the info.
    I checked the Australian Dist Serco for the Dyna S, but they don't seem to list any of the Dynatek products at all .
    I did find a place in Vic that sell the Dyna S called Ballistic Performance parts. there was quite a few overseas on FleBay.
    are there any other Aussie places that may have the Dyna S?

    I think i am more inclined to go with the Dyna S and stock coils, from what you guys have said.
    With the Dyna S installed, the stock igniter unit is not utilized anymore and can be removed from the Kat ,judging by the wiring diagram ?

    Cheers Simon

    I had a Dyna S on the wee beastie when I first finished it, but twice had one module fail outside of the warranty period. I'm sure I was just unlucky as they're generally reliable units. The reason I've gone back to stock was I was lucky enough to get a genuine ignitor for a good price (this model's ignition isn't common to many other models).

    When I did buy the second Dyna S, I just went through my local Suzuki dealer (Brisbane Motorcycles in my case) and they had it delivered from Serco the same day. That was pretty good service I must say! I think I exhausted the Serco stock though, when I checked again I think it was an 8 week lead time.

    I would've persevered with another Dyna S if they weren't so hard to get quickly locally. Hate having my daily rider off the road.

    On Derek's comment on the coils I can only agree... I kept running the Dyna coils for a while after going back to stock ignition but one coil started breaking down when hot, and that would've been 4 to 5 years old. Back to stock coils and they've been good since.
    1984 Katana 7/11 - done at last!

    1982 GS450E - not quite stock

    Thanks for the advice. I ordered the Dyna S and another screen from the USA
    I will keep the original stuff as a backup. just in case the Dyna S fails

    I am still running the original ignition system on my '83 1100 Kat with no issues at all. I do however have two spare coils that I managed to blag from a friend of mine just in case!!
    There is my opinion and then there is wrong!

    hi guys my old fatlady as in gsx 1100 et has had a set of green 3ohm coils with silicon leads a Dyna-s kit on it for 20 years at least 80 thousand ks and the only problem ever was the power connecter to the loom cut that piece of bleep out solder the wire in properly and away you go the bike has sat for some years on a couple of occasions put a decent battery across it touch the button and away it goes i reckon these things could fire up water my kat is running mini coils with the same triggers so expect the same reliability with this set up 15000 ks so far tip to all note to self again do not use your fingers etc to test for spark believe me there is no missing it cheers all
