If you guys haven't seen it before, http://home.comcast.net/~loudgpz/GPZweb/Ignition/GPZgmHEImod.html demonstrates building an ignition for the GPz 4s and the 750 twins, though both are 4 strokes and I'm not exactly sure what factors need to be accounted for when trying to duplicate this for a two stroke.

Alternatively, is there an aftermarket option that doesn't cost a butt and a nut?
The way i read it, it should work fine, one module per coil. The 4 cylinder setup would be the same since those bike are a wasted spark system (it fires at TDC every revolution).
