    Is there an ignition side cover available for the KA-100?  The exposed rotor and wiring seem like an iffy proposition….Sure, duct tape and zip ties can fix a lot, but just not a very clean solution…  Thanks…

    It is what IAME is doing with the new engines. No cover on the ignition side of the engine. Maybe someone can design and manufacture one?

      Hate to admit it but you are correct. Make sure you get the wires up…already made that mistake and had a ‘miss’ all through qualifying (only issue we have had and have run around 8 hours on two engines). Seems like it is going to be a big, affordable class at our track.

    Most 100cc reed valve engines (Reedjet, TT75 etc.) have no ignition cover.

      Greg — yes, but the MOTOPLATS have nice clean wiring…

      I think I’m going to develop a cover since I work at a CNC shop (as a programmer), and I’ll keep y’all posted.  It will be a plate with central hole for the rotor, and a hole to put the rubber grommet plug into that secures the internal wiring…  I’ll post a concept drawing once I have it.  Luckily there’s plenty of threaded locations for standoffs on that side.  I used to work at a small-run plastic injection molding shop as a machinist too, but that road would be too pricey for this limited an application…

    Loose wiring…

    The half-moon plug will fit into the cover, which will shield the other two wires from contact with the rotor…
