About the Puch Vec Electronic Ignition Coil
New in the world of Puch, the Puch Vec Electronic Ignition Coil. A new ‘Plug and Play’ toy for Puch lovers. This Coil works with all Puch Mopeds (and certainly for a Puch Maxi!) with a 2, 3 and 4 geared engine. In this post (5 min. read), we will show you if it is really as easy to use as they say, where you can buy it, some key findings, etc.
If you have any question, post your question at the comment section – bottom of this page.
Where to buy?
At your moped shop of course silly! If you don’t have a moped shop in mind, or you are too lazy to search for the ignition coil, you can buy it via our preferred Puch Parts supplier by clicking on the picture below or here
How the Vec Electronic Ignition Coil works
Is it Plug and Play?
Is it really as easy to use as they say? YES! Most of the people we asked this question were positive, certainly in case of a standard setup (50cc cilinders) or in other words, for the ‘street legal’ mopeds.
On a standard bike, with a good keyway and flywheel, it’s runs very good with the baseplate in the middle.
How do adjust the timing of the Puch Vec Electronic Ignition Coil?
A Good question; do you still have to adjust the timing? Yes and no. You don’t need to adjust the contactpoints since they are no longer used. But you do have to install the baseplate accordingly. In most cases (standard use), you need to place the baseplate in the middle.
How to adjust the pre-ignition with the Vec Electronic Ignition coil?
Note: we only suggest this for street legal bikes
- Spark plug: electrode-distance 0,8mm instead of the normal 0,45
- Spark plug Heat range: advised 8. However some people used 7 or even 6 and it also works perfectly.
- Ground plate to be put in the middle
What are the key findings so far?
- Relatively cheap and ease to use!
- Advised to be used for standard street legal mopeds ( > 3,5 HP)
- No maintenance
A small note and a special thanks!
Small note, I haven’t got the chance to tested it myself (not yet…), but many other people of our Puch community already did. We asked them their experiences accompanied with research on the internet and of course the dutch forum ‘puchforum.com’.
This post is not yet finished. More information will follow based on the questions you ask (see above).
Last but not least: A very specials thanks to our Dutch friend Klaas Wiebe Postma and Danish friend Nikolaj Lucas Sommer for sharing their experiences! If you have some experiences to share, it would be more than welcome!
