MPI - Memory Power Ignition

MPI (Memory-Power-Ignition) technology is an integral function of the EasyStart System.

A capacitor in the ignition coil accumulates and stores a slight charge from revolutions of the flywheel during start up, or from previous engine operation.

During subsequent starting cycle, this “stored” power is released to provide a strong spark at lower flywheel revolutions for the EasyStart process.

These features combined with a low-spark ignition coil enusure the Easy Start system provides:

  • less operator resistance
  • surer, more dependable starting
  • smoother ignitions
  • lower mechanical wear to starter assembly
