Replaced my points today with a kit from Dr_Bean, received them only three days after they where shipped.

I have been running "the Swedish fix" -mod for the past year, it has worked flawlessly (the points still looks new) but i always felt it was a temporary fix.

The upgrade was easy, a bit fiddly to get the cables through the holes, solder and hold everything still at the same time.
Have not tried it running yet (only without fuel) but i'm sure it works fine.

How does the Dr Bean kit hold up to water contact? I've been through some pretty deep water with both my SE and ADV with the stock points. It's been mentioned a few times that water contributes to the destruction of the points. I've had these pumps apart and know they are not watertite.

use the "search this thread" option above and enter "water", it's been discussed several times

I installed my kit yesterday...very well done, easy install.

I spent way too long trouble-shooting why it wouldn't work before finding out the ECU or relay or something cuts power three seconds after you turn the key on. Doh! I was chasing my tail on that one!

One question though: How did you get that little grommet back in place in the cap?

Don't feel bad. I installed the board on 2 different spare pumps I had and couldn't get it to work. After Mr Bean helped troubleshoot, I found both pumps had an internal short. Found a working used pump to do the install and it worked like a charm.

Hit the gromet with a little WD40 and it'll slide right in.

That's what happened to mine on the SE at 1100 miles. Points weren't the problem.

Finally got the time to install mine.
Doing the task while on the bike is quite interesting.
The grommet in tight quarters was the hardest part for me.

I did a test run while the cover was off. Good thing. It was so quiet I had to look to see the plunger moving.

As it turns out I bought 2 of these kits. I was originally going to put one on my brand new spare pump. I've decided to just leave the stock new one alone. If I use it on the road for some reason I can swap the PCB over to it later when I get home.

So if somebody (CONUS) is wanting a kit send me a PM and I'll split the cost that I paid for the pair. Should be quicker than waiting for one from Europe.
Edit- This second kit has been sold. Dr Bean shipped these to me really quickly. Just do it thru him. Good seller. :)

The internal short is due to the diode failing - can be fixed - worth your time? is another question. If you want to try PM me.

Received the little jewel today.

Very beautifully made, shining and minimal. Love it.
The hole GND is not to be used as per the photos?
Cheers.

Yes, correct. The original ground wire should be bolted below the stud, as described in the mounting instructions.

The pcb-GND hole is just in case the original ring-terminal failed somewhere, so you could solder the gnd-wire into the PCB instead.

see photos in this thread like:

So I've installed the kit today:)

It was easy, and *sigh* hopefully won't have to pull the pump now for a couple 10k's of miles:) (this is a 2k miles old pump, and already I had to wiggle the points in the middle of nowhere 3 times, because it got stuck..)

I'm not very good at soldering - as you can see it on the last 2 pictures - but the pump is working, and everything looks good (the black-blue wire goes through the PCB - it's just not all the way in, as the tin always hardened before I could get it all the way through ( I think I've cut the wire too long), so I gave up - but it should be OK. IMO)

Thank you Dr_Bean once again for your help, and for the kit!

2k!!! miles old pump (not only the points, but the whole pump), and you can see that the points are already missaligned - and now and then they tend to stuck:
