Dynatek 2000i...no status light

I was hoping to start up my chopper tonight but the ignition isn't cooperating. I'm worried. I bought this Dynatek on Ebay and didn't get a receipt and the return policy is 7 days.

Anyway, I checked the power right at the ignition on the white wire and it had juice I turned the ignition back and forth and the light never came on. So I started to pull it out of the cone when the light came on then the green came on momentarily and now that's it. I can't get it to do anything. I check all the wires and the purple wire for thhe VOES did have a small cut in it and it may have ground out, but the VOES is supposed to ground out when active. I can't see that would have killed it. Does anyone have any ideas or am I out $210??!?!?

I realize that. I am preparing to dish out another $200 at lunch today. I am going to just downgrade to the Dyna S with the mechanical advance. I don't need anything crazy. It's a stock Evo 80". I only bought the 2000i because it was the same price as the Dyna S. Lesson learned, no more Ebay here. I'm just going to Thunder Bay cycles in Tampa for everything now.

Yes, there is a gold cup in there. I called Dyna and they said the light shouldn't be on all the time. He said I should have someone turn it on and I watch the light. It should flash very quickly. I haven't done this. Usually I am turning on the ignition from one side of the bike and then walking around to the other side. I might even try cranking it over a couple of times with the plugs out to see if they spark.

I had this same problem with my Twin Tec Ignition....we would up taking it off and really cleaning the contact points on the back...I found a small piece of metal on one of them. While in there I really cleaned up the area where it sits. The ignition uses it as a ground point so there cant be any crap to stop it from properly grounding....Give that a shot

I cant say for certain that is it but mine did the exact same thing yours is doing...I couldnt get it to light up at all then saw a small flash when taking it out...I calmed down a bit and started looking closer at it...That is when I started doing some clean up work...Works great now


I know the horror but I bought mine on EBAY as well.......

Are you sure you are at TDC ON THE COMPRESSION STROKE?


you might be 180 out and the rotor is in the wrong spot to trigger the light.

yeah and realize the evo crate motor i got didnt have a mechanical advance just the gold cup. If i wanted to go to the s id have to put the weights and all in it. my shovel now thats a different story it had all the mechanical advance stuff in it already. good luck on that, I got one used it didnt work either I even fried hte coil because of it, turned out to be 400 for the whole get up.

The dynatek 2000 is dead ::: playing taps in the background::: I connected that damn thing directly to the battery, pos and neg...nothing. I wasn't 180 out, it was TDC. I could tell how the gaps in the cup lined up with the openings on the ignition. The ignition is supposed to flash a red light when it receives power, and it doesn't. It also isn't giving any current to the coil. I am going to get the Dyna S with the weighted advance. Luckily, Dyna is going to replace the 2000i for me and the Ebay seller said he would refund the money when I get the new one back to him. I know it sounds crazy, but I don't want anything to do with any 2000i at this point.

My bike is completely ready to start and now I am staring at an empty ignition cone.

I have the 2000i and it is very user friendly. You may have just got one that someone else new didn't work on ebay. I would never buy any electrical things on ebay. If you got a new 2000i I'm sure you would like it. Hope you get it fired up soon.

Your front two pushrods should be able to spin by hand when on TDC on the comp stroke. You may already know this but thought I'd throw it in if you didn't.
