elctronic timing and vr
« on: 18.05. 2015 19:35 »
My magneto needs re furb and I am pretty sure the regulator is duff. I am looking at a electronic ignition that fits in place of existing points and does not need the mag removing and linking this with a DVR from Sussex motorcycles.
Two questions. has anyone any experience of this set up?
Do I go for 6V or12V?
Thanks

G'day oldbeezageezer.
As far as i know all electronic ignitions are 12v either v+ve or -ve. The DVRII will convert your dynamo's 6v to 12v. SRM make a kit to go in the mag body. I've never seen one so I can't say it would be that simple as pulling your lucas points plate out and replacing it with the SRM unit.

Thank you for the reply Muskrat. I think I am convinced now to go the 12v route and use the DVR2. I just need to check out the 'fit in the mag' gizmo to make sure it as easy to fit as they advertise.

Also think I am going to go for a AGM battery as well. Have you any thoughts on those?

I like the AGM's. Made a big improvement in cranking over the fire breathing CB1135F.
