Cb125s electronic ignition
« on: Dec 18, 2017, 23:10:04 »
I am looking at changing my cb125s from the points system to an electronic ignition from Charlie's place. Has anyone done this conversion before and if so how hard is it? Also what are the pros and cons for switching to the electronic over the points? Thanks

I haven't done this specific change, but it's a fairly simple and common one to do.

When working correctly, an electronic ignition is usually something you can set and forget and never worry about again. When they're not working, they're not usually fixable by the home mechanic. The industry has moved away from points because electronic ignitions are generally superior in every way except the one I mentioned.
