Mike and Keith, thank you for attending and contributing to a great time!

My main car has a G10 in it, I just got a 2nd car last week, ran it on the weekend and the only speedie i had was a KO VFS2000, the car just felt so "Flat" im waiting on a reply from the Aussie importer Arcadia, hopefully i can get a 2nd unit in time for this weekend.

The G10 just seems to generate a lot more GRUNT, cant wait to seewhat the G11 has in store for us.

Sorry if this question was asked before.

Anyone here got the Tekin Discharger DIS-350 ?
Wonder if the new Tekin company can provide service for this piece of equipment.

Thanks for any info.

Ghostfit,

Tekin has some very talented Engineers that work for them and I would assume just e mail the tech department concerning your problem with your DIS-350 (Great piece of equipment by the way) and I am sure you will receive a very prompt reply.

Just go to www.teamtekin.com

Mike

I talked with Tekin about the dischargers last year. They only got a couple complete units when they bought the company, same with the dyno. Not sure about the discharger, but they have no information for repairing the dyno.
Definitely contact them. Hopefully the dischargers are repairable and they will make another one in the future. I know with their staff they could fix anything, but it's just a matter if they have the information they need on hand verse the cost of learning about the circuitry from scratch.

Take care
John

I would contact Tekin I am sure they would support it.

I still use mine and love it for all my matching & cycling needs.

Brian,

Tekin is in the process of moving to a bigger facility in McCall ID, so just give them a little time and it will be well worth it.

My G11 is super smooth and the ability to adjust the drive freq. is a major tuning aid.

Mike

Thanks for the assistance, Michal and everyone else.

There is no doubts in my mind with regards to Tekin Quality, I still have my BC112A, DIS-350, G12, Prostar-412. They were all put aside when the previous Tekin stopped operation.

They are still working after some 8 years since I got them. But lately the DIS-350 seems to shut down (When connected to 12V DC input) and the only way for it to work is to connect a 7.2V battery pack to the discharger's input. ......my guess is that some capacitor inside has passed it's useful life and needs replacing.

Gents!!!! I have a question about my G10. I have run as low as a 10 turn touring motor in my XXXS and JRXS but I will at the end of next month be running some 7 and 8 turn motors. Do I need anything other than just the speedo to be able to run these low turn motors? Diodes? Caps? I have run G-10's for the past 7 yrs mostly offroad and the past 2 yrs in sedan racing but mostly stock and 19 turn. I just don't want any surprises when I strap in a 7 turn mod. Thanks

Brant

Brant,
You won't need anything else but the G-10 speed control. That is the nice thing about them. YOu don't need caps or any of that other garbage. I ran mod last weekend it was 96 degree's outside and I ran 7 and 8 singles all day long with no problems. I know that the test guys at tekin regularly test with 6 singles and have no problems. So you should be fine to let it rip this summer. Hope that helps.
