BGM ignition base plates and ignition kits are the solid basis for a high quality engine.
The strong alternator guarantees perfect light output, the HQ ignition components a clean and powerful running engine.
Ideal for upgrading a decrepit, contact-controlled electrical system to a modern,
Maintenance-free high-performance ignition.
- High light output due to maximum number of windings
- Proven exciter coil with copper plate for maximum reliability
- Pickup with carbon barrier layer for a clean ignition pulse
- High-quality solder joints
- Grey and black bougie tube
- Sufficient cable length for individual wiring
- Can be combined with additional modules (PiFi, Kytronic,Agusto)
Compared to a conventional electronic ignition, the BGM ignition base plate has specially combined coil windings. This further improves the efficiency of the alternator.
The alternators are available as AC and DC version:
- AC = alternating current = light via alternator
- DC = direct current = light via battery
The AC version is best suited for conversion to a good electronic ignition. In this case, the vehicle electrical system is basically maintained as Innocenti has conceived it, although the best way is to use a fresh cable harness.
Conversion to DC only makes sense with simultaneous conversion to an adequately dimensioned battery (from 5Ah). In this case, the entire luminous flux feeds only the battery via a so-called full wave regulator. This then supplies all consumers. The required full wave regulator is included in the corresponding AC set, please order the battery separately. The advantage is the perfect light without flickering, already in idle speed. The disadvantage is the required battery, the high charging losses in the lower speed range (regulator gets very warm) and the necessary modifications of the wiring harness.
TIP: The DC ignition can also be used as AC ignition at any time. For this purpose connect the red/yellow cable to ground. The yellow cable should then be connected as a live cable to a conventional voltage regulator (e.g. BGM6690).
FOR WHICH ENGINE?
The ignition kits are available for both crankshaft types of the Lambretta Series 3 models:
- small alternator cone: LI, LIS, SX, TV
- Large alternator cone: GP/ DL
Note: The BGM ignition has been carefully designed and harmonizes perfectly with all common ignition components, especially with the BGM pole wheel.
To ensure that the BGM ignition always finds optimal conditions, we include with the version 4.0 spacer plates for the pickup. With this the base plate can also be combined with pole wheels whose trigger surface height (demolition surface of the pick-up) is outside the standard (e.g. AF pole wheels) or if tolerances of the engine housing and/or crankshaft overlap unfavourably.
