Thanks Tim! I really like the group of guys on this forum. I find that this is the best place to come for me to scratch the part of my brain that keeps me connected to my childhood. I just have been dealing with a lot of adulting lately, and trying to build a life for myself and my girlfriend. Its all gotten in the way of this project much more than I ever thought it would, and I would be a liar if I said I would have been willing to give up on this a few months ago... I accepted the challenge 6 years ago to learn from my mistakes with this build, and let it challenge me to be a better technician, and now I can say without a doubt that I still have so much to learn from this bike. I need to keep it just for the wisdom it has to bestow upon me.Welcome back.....
Commendable Also says a lot about maturing generally when you put needs ahead of wants: some never do. Hopefully, someday you can be an old-fart (like some of us) and do what you want, whenever you want to (or feel able to).I just have been dealing with a lot of adulting lately, and trying to build a life
That makes me feel a bit better about it all. I often wonder how fast I'm going to be 60. 26 hit me like a train, and I simply cannot believe I've had this Yamaha a whole 6 years, but sure enough... I have. I'm glad I own it outright and can work on it when life allows it. I do wish that life allowed it more often than not though. I'll get there one day. I'm motivated, and work hard to succeed and set up a comfortable living.Commendable Also says a lot about maturing generally when you put needs ahead of wants: some never do.

SO. Ive been a motorcycle tech at a dealership for a year as of the first of October. What a fast year that was. To celebrate I think Im going to be purchasing all that I need to convert my XS to electronic ignition. that being said, theres SO MANY different opinions on which brand to get, and what I need/what works...
also, I still really like my job, and I couldnt be happier to wrench on bikes and quads, and side by sides all day.
Ive seen a lot of good things about the boyer brandson systems. I could always use support lol. None of us know it all. Im one of the ones that actually know very little. I just have the ability to eventually figure out where I went wrong and make it right haha.I think you should check out Boyer Bransden
Price is about midrange
It is a company that has done it for a long time on Britt Bikes
They should have the know how by now.
And they have a support not suggesting that you'll need one but I like that.
You get answers and there are online fault finding procedures.
There are cheaper systems especially if you keep the advance unit which can be the problematic one
And you can buy much more expensive ones programmable advance curves and so.
If you dont like it you can go back to points
