I`ve personally logged thousands of hours on Beta`s since I bought an 89 tr34 in 1990. Never any ignition issues. I also was a dealer for over ten years and never an issue. I have seen a few in that last few years and they were on ten year old bikes. I think the UK has more problems due with moisture. The 315 had some faults, but I prefer not to rag on another brand. (Unless it`s the Gasser PRooBlem models!!)
