Dyna or Enduralast Ignition? ('77 R100S)

So I think I'm gonna retrofit an electric ignition on the bike-
It sounds like the Enduralast will be more precise due to mounting on the alternator, but I like that Dyan is waaaaay less $$......

And advice on which system to go with??
Thanks in "advance"-- (haha, see what I did there?)

Take a look at this thread first. Though it is long and mind-boggling:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ht=enduraspark

The upshot is many of us are having issues with digital ignitions from all suppliers (mine from Sachse). I think this has happened with both Hall and optical sensors, yes? And it has happened with both the EME charging systems, and with stock. Nobody seems to know what is causing an intermittent, but regular, momentary glitch. Seems impossible, and maybe it's a case of people on the internet thinking they are experiencing the same thing, but I would consider it.

Hey- I just spoke to a guy euromotoelectrics here in Colorado, he was saying that the hiccup issue was in the previous model and the new systems, the "BOIGNSCan" don't have that issue. He (matt) was saying that the old issue was from the modern electronics dealing with the weak/old school charging/battery system.. and the hiccup was the electronics rebooting....

Here's the new upgraded system:

Anyone with any experience with this?

For what it's worth, I inherited a Dyna III still in the box from my PO and after installing it I seem to be having issues with it not timing correctly at high rpms until it 'warms up' and then my light shows it's on the dot.

That's a bean can style. Did Matt say that would fit your '77? I'm not sure it will.

As outlined on that previous thread, he has been looking into this problem some. Notably, he is now sourcing Sachse components. However, my problems were with a recently purchased Sachse crank-mounted optical unit. So...I dunno.

Sachse.
Optical (magnetic interference not an issue), 7 advance curves, no issues.

Or for the bean can option.

Has anyone on this site used this option - converting their bean can to the optical Sachse unit?

Has anyone tossed the "Points or Electronic?" thread into the mixer?

Which is more reliable ... Points or Electronic Ignition for Airheads?

So put the new ignition system in yesterday..... Started up first try.. Took it for a short spin to see how it was running, but the "short spin" was so nice, I ended up roaring to the top of the Park.....
