The solution preferred by a significant number of riders is not a part of this survey. Myself an many others keep the ignition points but add a Booster. If there is an electronics failure the parts to convert back to the OEM ignition are still on the bike, they do not need to be carried in the tool box, all that's needed is moving a couple of wires.

Ignition points are made cheaper and the tips are made thinner than in years past. They burn out sooner. They should be checked and re-timed after run in and and checked again at each tune up. If using a Booster the ignition points will be more stable requiring fewer adjustments.

I recently bought a Velleman Electronic Ignition Kit. I received this yesterday.

I have to find my soldering gun but think I might be able to install this later this month.
