how a cdi works...

...and why the femsatronic is different. this is good stuff, and i think it explains a better way to convert it. i think i'll be building one of these for sophie's bike.

this must mean that you got spark?
If you keep fiddling with it, it's going to fall off...

no spark yet, i was busy yesterday. i need to go to norvac and buy a couple of the parts they mention. and to spark another debate....it would appear that the timing can be adjusted by changing the capacitor, just a thought i might try.

no it had the ducati on it, but looking at the sites, i can get a couple small parts and improve the accuracy and reliability of it.
