Re: Dyna DS1-3 Help!

Well I got a call from the shop that sold me the Dyna S (bought it through Amazon) and the assumption by their shop tech based on my issues is that the Dyna is more than likely fine and my issue is timing. He told me that points are more forgiving with regards to timing and that setting the timing f...

Re: Dyna DS1-3 Help!

A bad module is not out of the question. Happens often. Why don't you contact Dyna and see if they can help? Did you ever check for a good ground at the plate? Well after not being able to solve my problem with the Dyna S I decided it was time to contact the seller from Amazon first with details of...

Re: Dyna DS1-3 Help!

Well I finally got back to trying to resolve my issue with the Dyna S. After connecting a relay to the battery and verifying full voltage from the relay to the red hot wire lead I dialed in the static timing for both F2 and F1 and the problem persists. Motor stumbles at idle, idle RPM at nearly 500 ...

Re: Dyna DS1-3 Help!

After a reply that was made about the Dyna S maybe not getting enough voltage and maybe tapping power directly from the battery I decided that would be a viable option. So today I installed a relay switch that switches on the juice directly from the battery through the relay to the Dyna S module. Bu...

Re: Dyna DS1-3 Help!

Did you find the problem yet? Not yet! The points are back in for now while I consider my next step. I may try a direct fused connection to the battery next as well as some voltage testing at the acc terminal while the bike is running. For now I'm servicing the rear wheel drive gear and get some ne...

Re: Dyna DS1-3 Help!

Ideally, you need to prove the wires as close to the Dyna unit as possible, while it's all plugged in with ignition on. Any volt drop, due to a poor crimp or bad connection, may only show up while the circuit is under load. Maz I may make up a new power lead with a better connector than what was su...

Re: Dyna DS1-3 Help!

The fix for lower voltage right from Dyna is a fused connection right to the battery. It’s common to lose a bolt or more through the connectors through the switch. The description made me wonder if wires were crossed to plugs, but being points run it fine makes me think otherwise. If I make a direc...

Re: Dyna DS1-3 Help!

I had my Dyna S hooked up to the ignition for power and I got a miss when the blinker was on. Just enough voltage drop to throw it off. I got the Dyna clean power from the battery using a relay and solved the issue. So clean 12v power is important, 11.5 volts may not work. I will check the voltage....

Re: Dyna DS1-3 Help!

If you mean the coils being from the mid 80’s then I would agree with you but the Dyna S that I installed and having issues with is a brand new unit. I followed the instructions for checking if the plugs are firing and all four are. Since I had the plugs out I regapped them with no improvement. I th...

Re: Dyna DS1-3 Help!

So are the star washers used in place of the existing flat washers or as an add on to the existing flat washers?

In the pic of the Dyna unit you can see the existing flat washers under the retaining screws.

Dyna DS1-3 Help!

I've been a member for a couple years since I bought my 1978 GL1000 and have been pretty much lurking until now. Ok. So I decided to order the Dyna ignition for my 1978 GL1000. I did a lot of research before I decided to order one and give it a try on my GL. I installed the Dyna according to all of ...
