    Just looking into electronic ignition on my cb250, and wanted to ask you guys and gals about opinions? Is it worth it? Pro's and cons? Also wanted to add how addictive these forums are...

    That's like, your opinion, man.

    Big Bad,
    Like you, I find my worse technical aspect is wiring. Maybe it is from dealing with Lucas components for so many years. So, anything I can do to reduce the electical confusion I consider worthwhile.

    Just my opinion of course, but I have always used Boyer Brandsen ignitions. I have one on my BSA. It is so simple, steady, and strong, that when I slowly kick the engine through TDC to get ready to start it (like 10 RPM), I can feel the plug fire when the engine passes the compression stroke. It always works, and it never requires adjustment, or wears out.
