used to sell a ton of replacement electronic ignitions with optic sensor/triggers for British sports cars. this was 15+ years ago, so they've been around a day or two. Lucas was referred to as the prince of darkness. their electronics were junk.
back on topic... starting to wonder if all the electronic ignition failures on airheads are due from being located under front cover?
like it or not ... airheads has a higher than normal electronic ignition failures. this includes BMW and aftermarket electronic ignitions both. so failures cannot be tied to one particular brand.
naturally as a mechanic, you would probably like it ... as electronic ignition failure brings consistent business.
