NEW Electronic Ignition Option
« on: September 26, 2018, 01:08:23 PM »

I hadn't seen this option before, looks like a cost effective option for electronic ignition....


*I have run this brand with my cb350 and it worked without issue so I have had apositive experience*

I'm going to assume that this retains the governor assembly. Essentially it's like the old Pertronic pickups that were available for cars back in the 70s to replace the points. As such it doesn't not control iming advance and retard so it needs to use the existing governor. If it doesn't then don't get it.

Correct, it uses the advance governor but has its own rotor. Interesting it says xs500c but not e or d. I have messaged for more info and will let you know if I hear anything
