Where is that you are getting your info. Electronic ignitions fail on all makes. Hall effect sensors are in hot spots in most motorcycle engines, not just airheads. I have been a car mechanic and worked at multi-line motorcycle dealerships. Other bikes DO have electronic ignition failures. Honda's or Yamaha's? Most of them are totaled long before most airheads. Go figure. And yes, electronic ignitions are still much more reliable than points.
Brass floats aren't the answer either!
