No Disston, It isn't that I can't be convinced, I just don't really see the need to add another piece of electrickery to the equation. I have never had any major issues with the stock points on a totally stock bike. I have had a set die out in the middle of nowhere, but as I always carried a spare set of points and condensor, not a big deal to change them out on the side of the road. And you know it is the points right away, as you don't have something else in the system that just might be the issue.

We all know that ignition trouble always happens at the worst possible times, usually when it is getting dark and either threatening to rain or already is a total downpour. I prefer to have things as simple as possible, which matches up to my simple mind.

Now if you are changing other things, and trying to get more performance, Then I can see it being a good idea, or even better going to full electronic. To me, it all comes down to the application.
