Part: Shockwave Electronic Ignition System for Honda CB175 / CL175 / SL175 / CB200 / CL200
Why You Need This: Ever since Common Motor Collective released the Shockwave electronic ignition system for the Honda CB350, we have been working to expand the Shockwave lineup to include all the vintage Hondas that we support. The Shockwave is the product of over 3 years of R&D and 10,000+ real road miles of testing, We are proud to present to the Shockwave Electronic Ignition System for the two cylinder Honda CB175 / CB200 family of motorcycles.
The Shockwave replaces the ignition points and condenser on the Honda CB175, CL175 Scrambler, SL175, CB200, or CL200 Scrambler series of motorcycles. Never change or adjust points again. The Shockwave allows for more accurate and stable ignition timing which means your bike will start easier, run and idle smoother.
1) *Warranty is only valid if your CB175 / CB200 is running a Common Motor #3023 combo regulator rectifier (besides you should be running one anyway as it is the single best electrical upgrade you can do to your bike!) If you have not upgraded yet, you can purchase one now with the Shockwave at a discount price. Early CB175 / CB200's do not have a voltage regulator and later bikes that are equipped with one are very prone to failure. A voltage spike from a defective original (or non-existent) voltage regulator can potentially damage the electronic components of the Shockwave. Hence our requirement for a new unit to be in place to avoid such damage.
2) The Shockwave will work with stock ignition coil with a minimum resistance of 3.5 ohms. If you want to put on a fresh coil on select it from the option parts. A new set of CB175 spark plugs or CB200 spark plugs will round out the package.
Installation Tip: Watch all the installation videos to make the process as easy as possible. You will need a set of feeler gauges to set sensor positions. A strobe-style automotive timing light is recommended to check the final ignition timing once the engine is running.
