I do not have any direct experience, but boyers have been known to behave in unexpected ways, and there has to be a reason why they changed the wiring to provide a more direct earth.

Most of the problems with Boyers can be put down to faulty wiring and poor connections. Boyers ( at least the analogue ones) like good voltage. A bit of corrosion in a connecter coupled with a poor quality switch or fuse holder and there;s enough voltage drop to cause problems and everyone blames the Boyer.

I have a Norton race bike that I built in 1983 and it still has the same Boyer on it still working.
