advantages over stock system:
  • material is new and available
  • solid state, con tactless ignition on hall effect basis with automatic advance control
  • no problem any more with points and  govenor
how does this offer differ to other offers on the market which seem to be cheaper?
  • this material does not simply replace the points by a hall element leaving the stock govenor, stock ignition coil and distributer finger in place
  • if offers a genuine CDI with nearly 40KV output and not only a transistor trigger for the stock coil.
  • it is not based on a photo sensor which easily malfunction in conditions of of oil and dirt and it does not have any open printed circuit boards which corrode as you have in some other offers.
  • it may be run on 6 or 12V batteries
What needs to be done?
  • place pre-assembled adapter unit into the distributer housing and fasten with 3 screws M4 using existing holes there (see drawing below right)
  • Place rotor on distributer shaft (fasten only after having timed ignition)
