Sure, electronic is more expensive than points at the stealership, but if you add up all the points needed to last 300,000+ miles, I think the costs actually are in favour of the electronic. And a whole lot less time spent futzing.
And your bike is running better most of the time. Brand new points only work like brand new when they are brand new.
