|chris||Hi Cati, welcome to the forum! You will want to start a new thread on the board and talk about your immobilizer problem. It is unrelated to the simple ignition systems on carbureted Ducatis.|

From anecdotal feedback, I would presume the carb'd Ducatis design is such that the limit of any coils' operation is near 9000 rpm depending on the amount of time the coils need to charge.
Two situations I've heard of that would lend weight to this:
Looking back, it was dumb luck that when we chose the 3Ω dyna coils that they worked at all, let alone worked well for so many people. Upon that above feedback is why we switched to 5Ω coils in the mid 2000s. We switched to our own branded coils in the late 2000s when Dyna increased the laminate layers of the coils to the point where we weren't able to machine off the extra mounting hole. And based on our knowledge about the current draw is why we chose to match the factory 4.6Ω primary resistance value.

How to set the [base advance]
the best way to check the base advance for the Ignitech:
set all values of the TCI-P4 to zero
>>1500 = 0°; 2000 = 0°; 2500 = 0°; 3000 = 0°; 3500 = 0°; 4000 = 0°; 4500 = 0°; 5000 = 0°; 9000 = 0°; 9500 = 0°; base advance = 0°; Limitter = 10000rpm<<
-> the TCI-P4 triggers the spark at the end of the flywheel-lobe over the whole rpm-range
check the ignition timing with the strobe (as described in the workshop manual / the mark on the flywheel is at 6°)
-> if the spark match the mark on the flywheel, you have to set the base advance to 6°
<check both cylinder>
(if you need to use other advance at idle speed - you need tho check this with a timing wheel http://www.ducatimeccanica.com/timing_degree_wheel.jpg )

how can I determine the base advance with a strobe?

usually the Kokusans are set to 6° btdc (wsm) that's the value at idle
-> so you need to check at idle speed with a stroboscope
and set it to this value

just got the standard TCIP4 unit.. not installed yet.
before that: after my pickups failed, I replaced them with the P8s and the bike is running 'fine' again.. all stock right now, I noticed some backfiring.. what could be the cause? I think it's more when decelerating.
back to the TCIP, I don't know exactly how to wire it. they sent me the wiring to match stock units and there's a pair of black connectors and a white one. which one's for the horizontal and which for the vertical?
then the base advance - do I have to change it from the stock setting? this horrifies me because it's not really a pleasure to get to the pickups again..
Thanks in advance!

i use this values since April 2009:
1400 = 6°
2000 = 20°
2500 = 27°
3000 = 30°
3500 = 32°
4000 = 33°
4500 = 34°
5000 = 35°
9000 = 39°
9500 = 0°
Base advance = 6°
Limiter 10 000 rpm
..works fine :-))
Ducati Performance is only a modified analog Kokusan unit
The Kokusan Ignition should be set at 6°
(Mark at Flywheel)
so you should set the reference for the TCIP4 [base advance] at the same value ..
M900; '99; Mikuni TDMR40; IgniTech TCIP4

base advance correction
I bought a year ago a TCIP4 to replace the two units Kokusan bb1105 of my Ducati Monster 900cc of 1998.
I've two question about the settings because i want to copy a ducati performance 1.1 unit that is set:
6° until 1600 rpm, 30° from 2800 to 8000 rpm, 20° at 11000 rpm with intermediate values.
1. Considering that my flywhell is 4 degrees base advance, what should i set as base advance? 6° as ducati performance setting or i have to ad the 4° of my flywhell..therefore 10° is the right setting (6+4)?
2. The subsequent values can be set exactly as ducati performance unit or I have to correct adding the 4° of my flywhell base advance? (so 34° from 2800 to 8000 and 24° at 11000 rpm)
