I am very happy with the BTH.
I hid the coils under the ski slope. I used a piece of rectangular aluminium bar, drilled a hole through it the same size as the tubing at the back, then split it and bolted (clamped) it to the tube.

Another pic, showing how the leads from the coil are routed

Hi all,
Thanks a lot for your useful advice, but I still owe the end of this dread. I installed the BTH ignition, I mounted the ignition coils in the battery box and the CDI box on the frame. I mounted the Battery in the Toolbox (a little but strong Hawker 6 Volt Battery). I used the existing ignition-gear and blocked his automatic adjustment. Everything was easy and everything works OK.

i m using a coil set up but recommend the 12volt armature kit sold on the net and a dvlr reg. it produces the low speed amps you need.
