Upgrade your tired old electrical system with a powerful modern 12 Volt all-in-one solution. No more timing adjustments; this system is set-and-forget. You'll have brighter lights, fat CDI sparks resulting in fewer fouled plugs, and no more getting stranded from a weak battery. You could even run with no battery at all. 

The Vape charging system comprises a 12 Volt 150 Watt single-phase permanent magnet alternator (PMA) and a Revival exclusive regulator/rectifier compatible with lithium-ion, AGM, and lead-acid batteries. This system provides a considerable voltage increase at low RPMs, meaning you're reaching charge voltages sooner and not just relying on your battery voltage in stop-and-go traffic. The ignition system produces its own power, so the stator only needs to maintain voltage for the starter and lighting. 

Vape ignition systems use capacitive discharge (CDI) tech to produce fat, blue ignition sparks that improve fuel combustion and inhibit plug fouling regardless of available battery voltage. The system includes coils, wires, caps, and an ignition module that replaces the old mechanical advance with an electronic advance with two or more curves to select from. 

This system won't eliminate the possibility of kickbacks these singles are notorious for, and this system is not recommended for high compression 10:1 mods.

More tips!

  • Be sure to revisit the link to the Vape installation guide provided near the bottom of our product page for this specific kit. 
  • You can integrate Vape systems with the Motogadget mo.Unit for a 100% modernized electrical system on a vintage bike. 
  • Pay particular attention to the instructions regarding tightening all of the screws on the ignition. They are finger-tight from the factory. We recommend using a blue thread locker on all hardware to eliminate any possible backout from vibration.  
  • Vape kits do not come with a woodruff key slot. We hear concerns about this from time to time. We use these on our own projects and in all the years we've sold these, we've never seen a single issue. Many bikes don't use keys, and a correctly installed rotor doesn't need one. Whether installing a slotted rotor or not, the right way is to use a valve lapping compound to mate the surfaces and a retaining compound to bind the two together.

Easy to install, worked like a charm!

Installed on my TT500 engine. I was super impressed with the detailed install instructions included—it made the swap really straightforward. I had tried some 12v stator conversions to my TT500 in the past, but they never delivered enough even power. But with the Vape system I can finally run batteryless! The lights do indeed pulse at idle if you have the headlight on though. I use an LED daytime running lights, and they are bright at idle when the headlight is off. My only complaint is that the ignition coil requires some fabrication to get it to fit in the stock location. For over $600, you think they'd include a mount for it. But everything else works great!

100% impressed over and over again by Jeff & Co at Revival. They’re patient and kind no matter the enquiry (currently resto-modding an R100/7 and have LOTS of questions about the Motogadget rewire) and go out of their way to offer creative solutions and out of the box thinking. I will forever return and recommend Revival.

I cannot recommend Revival Cycles enough. Not only do they have a great assortment of gear and accessories but they provide superb customer service. I was having some difficulty making it work... Jeff pointed out what I was missing and also provided schematics to make it work. Thank you guys very kindly, your crew rocks.
