    Looks like I'll have to change the oil AND spark plug this year to beat you. I might even clean off the dirt from last years endurance race.

    ignition comes from Germany. Louie Q installed several on Rd's and other SRs, and it works great. Comes with 20 different advance curves that can be changed by microswitches.

    Link is here. They have a huge no. of kits for vintage. Pipe is NOT Ti.

    Price shipped is about 400.00

    The Yamaha systems have been reliable for Louie's customers?

    The BMW systems they make have been very spotty quality wise. Some don't work straight out of the box. 4 systems for the same model bike used different colored wires for the same functions. If you were doing an install using the old instuctions vs. that particular box stuff would be wrong.
