Basic electronics Delta.

The spark plug acts like a capacitor. Put a resistor in series and you get a low pass filter (low frequencies get through).

This has the effect of rounding off the sharp “attack” edge of the voltage pulse to the plug, softening and lengthening it.

The high frequency interference is caused by the sharp attack edge of the pulse, so soften it and you get less interference.

The shaping of the spark pulse helps the fuel burn (as long as the combustion chambers are designed to use it).

But I’m an electronics engineer not a mechanical so my knowledge stops there!

Of course, resistor plugs/caps were required in the 70s because the ignition systems broadcasted in the FM frequency band (98-108 MHz).

Nowadays nobody broadcasts there (not that we care about anyway)

Our bikes would have to be nuclear powered to interfere with DAB or 3G/4G bands

it's self lubricating which is good for seal life.

Serious question.

How does that work (metallurgically) ?

Plus select “Inline image” from the drop down menu.

Sorry - can’t make it the default

The limit is to save disk space on the server.

A 1Mb image is just as good as a 10Mb image for a forum.

I’m still a mod on the .net site.

OK they have 10x as many members as us, but

It’s true that I don’t have a security certificate on this site.  Mainly because of the cost.

That doesn’t mean that we are a dodgy lot though - just insecure

I’ve never seen this before.

Might try logging in as you to see.
