Private Label Program for
What is your private label
program for engine builders?
Twin Tec can provide a complete private label solution to your ignition
requirements at a competitive cost. Any of our units can be supplied with your
logo and product name on the label. The accompanying instruction manuals and
software can be similarly customized. The minimum purchase requirement is very
can also be shipped preprogrammed to your exact specifications at no extra
cost. For low volume customers,
Twin Tec branded units are available with no minimum order quantity.

protect my data so that competitors can't see it and customers can't modify it?
Yes! We carefully considered
this requirement in the design of our products. An engine builder may spend
considerable dyno tuning effort generating custom advance curves. At the same
time they may want to prevent customers from making unauthorized modifications
(such as increasing the RPM limit) that might result in an expensive warranty
claim. They may also want to be able to download the operational history of a
unit, to see how long and how hard it has been run.
We have a very responsive
private label program. If you purchase a reasonable minimum quantity, we will
put your name and logo on any of our products including the
instruction manuals and software. We will assign you a special firmware ID code that will
be programmed into your units. Only your software will be able to access your
units. If you maintain control over your software, no one else will be able to
access your units. As long as you make a reasonable minimum annual
purchase, we will continue to update your version of the software.
In some cases, you may want to
have two private label versions of a product: one that has restricted access
and a second that your customers can reprogram.
Can I automatically retard timing
with a turbocharger or nitrous oxide injection system?
Yes! This is possible with Twin
Tec Model 1005, 1006, and 1007 ignitions. You will require the optional PC
link cable and software. You can easily reconfigure the VOES switch input as a
retard input. You can program the retard value over a 0-10° range. When the
retard input is grounded, ignition timing is automatically retarded.
For a turbocharger application,
you can simply replace the VOES switch with a pressure activated switch. For
nitrous applications, use a relay. Connect the relay coil in parallel with the
solenoid valves and use a normally open contact to ground the retard input
whenever the solenoid valves are energized.

How do I wire up a custom bike
with a Twin Cam 88 Engine®?
You can easily do this with our
TC88 ignition. The wire harness is readily available from your local H-D®
dealer and you can use the wiring diagram in the H-D®
manual. At a minimum, you must hookup the crankshaft position (CKP) sensor,
manifold pressure (MAP) sensor, ignition coil, power, and ground. If you have
an early Twin Cam 88 engine with the camshaft position (CMP) sensor, you can
leave this sensor disconnected.
We highly recommend that you
leave the H-D®
data link plug intact, as it is required for the PC link. If you are not using
the stock (or a Twin Cam 88®
compatible) instrument cluster, leave the check engine LED wire (black
connector, pin 4) unconnected. This signal cannot drive a lamp bulb. The tach
signal is at pin 12 on the black connector. The tach signal should drive most
aftermarket tachs intended for H-D®
applications. If you are not using a bank sensor or TSSM module, you must
ground the wire going to pin 10 on the black connector.
If you are making your own wire
harness, please be advised that all the H-D®
manuals and wiring diagrams show an incorrect view of the MAP sensor and
mating connector. The wire colors shown for terminals A, B and C are correct
but the view is reversed. If you don't pay attention to the terminal letters
engraved on the connector, your wiring harness will be incorrect and the
ignition will not run. The correct view is shown below.
