Takai's - RipFORCE Ignition Coils!

Crisp throttle response, smooth engine operation, higher horsepower and a more enjoyable riding experience. WIth our RipFORCE Ignition Coil Systems, you get it all.

Like they say, in order to have a perfect, and high output combustion event, the fact is you need a high output spark event. Like the old saying goes, you need to put energy into a process to get energy back out of it.Superior ignition cap, coil

Because of this Takai engineers have developed several high output / highly compact / high energy pencil style coil on plug ignition coils for all performance oriented powersport engines.

From our Level 1 to our Level 4 RipFORCE4 coil packages (formerly M-Raikou), Takai uses the latest innovations developed and released for all out performance venues and has redefined high performance ignition coil design by increasing output characteristics while reducing size and weight restrictions. Through this TAKAI has also developed an array of coil on plug conversion kits for stock applications that are using a separate ignition coil and wire to maximize the benefit and enhance the engines power delivery!

Using a cost is no object approach in the engineering phase and developed by using existing "COP", coil on plug ignition coil models developed for platforms such as F1, TAKAI has successfully adapted ALL the latest cutting edge technology to bolt on your modern day street or performance oriented vehicles. (*see chart A in technical section below) This allows for the best dollar to horsepower gains available by extending horsepower by an average of +1-2 horsepower and +1-2 torque per cylinder (+4-8 engine horsepower and +4-8 torque common on street orientated 4 cylinder applications) across the rpm band resulting in dramatic engine performance enhancements, as well as vastly improved driving experience due to smoother engine response. RipFORCE high energy ignition coils / super coils, have also been proven to deliver more then 75+hp in high horsepower nitrous and turbocharged drag bike applications.

TAKAI RipFORCE ignition coil caps are also designed to output multiple spark discharge events for improved engine performance and mileage benefits. TaKaI has also coupled a high output “X2 focal core” which helps focus the energy field in the ignition coil for a hotter, higher efficiency spark event. The materials used and the overall design of the TAKAI RipFORCE coils are also made to dramatically reduce energy loss via hysteresis (energy loss in an ignition circuit) vs other designs by as much as 70% ensuring greater engine response, mileage and performance characteristics from your engine. (*see chart B below in technical section)

As a result, energy and spark duration is increased at the spark gap by as much as 50% over conventional designs allowing more fuel to be ignited and more energy to be released in your combustion events untapping the true fury of your engine! This ensures the TAKAI RipFORCE coils start your engine easier, delivers more engine horsepower and deliver superior response and mileage benefits. Surpassing all others in form and function, not only can TAKAI ignition coils improve power output, fuel mileage and part throttle engine characteristics but they also have a proven positive lock spark plug retention mechanism that allows the coil to be screwed onto the spark plug for maximum performance and reliability*. This completely eliminates the coil from inadvertently coming loose from the spark plug while increasing ignition coil electrical transfer efficiency.

HOW TAKAI COILS WORK, PERFORMANCE MEASUREMENTS VS COMPETITOR PRODUCTS
(NO HYPE, FLUFF OR OPINION, REAL ENGINEERING AND REAL NUMBERS) Ignition Cap Q factor

Q FACTOR COMPARISON

CHART A
NOTE : Higher is better.
This determines overall product effectiveness and design. The higher the Q measurement the lower the total rate of energy loss. Average measured Q factor gives an indication of overall product performance. The ideal product would have infinite Q factor. Takai RipFORCE measures in 2 - 15% better on average.
*



ignition coil leakage loss

LEAKAGE LOSS COMPARISON

CHART B
NOTE : Lower is better.

Unlike other designs there are no tradeoffs in performance due to TAKAI's superior engineering. Leakage loss is a measurement of energy loss in the ignition coil before the final output stage. This is not part of the Q measurement. An ideal product would have zero losses for maximum efficiency. Actual average measured improvement with Takai coils is 20 - 70%.
*


It is very difficult to come up with a design that offers the best of all worlds but this is Takai's goal. Overall system efficiency is a cumulation of several factors, these two (leakage loss and q factor) summing up most of the important variables such as hysterisis loss, impedance loss, resistance, copper and core loss, skin effect loss, etc. It becomes apparant after looking at the test results how the Takai Super Coils more effectively output more energy vs the competition.

*Same measurement time and device used to test all products. Takai M RAIKOU SUPER COILS show improvements vs all competitors at all engine operating rpms.

RipFORCE, Super Coil Conversion Kits!

Kawasaki coil on plug technologyTakai engineers are the FIRST to develop aftermarket late model, high output, coil on plug technology. Unlike traditional ignition coils, coil on plug has several features not found on previous ignition coil designs. Because of this TAKAI is the leader in testing and producing the latest generation ignition coil products such as pencil style ignition coils.

RipFORCE ignition coils have the latest technologies which focus the magnetic field for the lowest inductive leakage (which means more electrical energy is converted into spark energy) vs ANY major coil on plug supplier and supplies a direct connection to spark plug eliminating the need for high-tension cables between the ignition coil and the spark plug (on our COP conversion kits).

By eliminating the spark plug cable TAKAI ignition coils can further focus and reduce electrical transmission losses at the spark gap allowing for maximum engine efficiency and performance. See our TAKAI COIL ON PLUG conversion kits for the ultimate in performance related ignition components!

Our ignition coils also use the latest epoxy casting materials as well as utilize high cross section low loss core designed for high energy spark events. The manufacture of these coils also employ number of new technologies that enhance the internal structures which includes a vaccume moulding process for tighter more accurate components. This allows design dimensions of our components to be produced within one hundred thousanths of an inch for the highest accuracy, highest output components available. Special winding technology, vaccume pressurized high voltage encapsulation potting technology and high precision assembly are also other key benefits and features of the new generation coils.

Our ignition coils also take up a smaller footprint, are more compact, have a lighter weight and provide a seemless interface to the top of the spark plug. The ignition coil can also be installed in the plug hole which previously house a high tension electrical cable allowing for components to be more seemlessly integrated into the engine assembly while offering a more efficient electrical conduction path.
