Most of what they are doing has already been done on the forums.
The tower coils were brought out in the open via Dave a couple years ago.
The optical stuff isn't new and explained in the forums.
And multi-discharge is cheap for all of us now.

They too have a "one plate fits all" approach. Pick the number of pick-ups, clock them, drill for mounting, 2 or 4 cylinder wheel and... SHA-ZAMM! We in business...

Street applications will find no benefit in using optical vs. Hall (magnetic) triggering.

@ $450.00 they are re-couping their development costs, ...probably on a 2.5 multiplication factor. Maybe even higher.
You and I can put the same thing together for less than $100.00. If you're really thrifty, sub-$50.00 is a truth.
"UNQUOTE "
there are several fanciful statements here. and i suspect downright untruths. at least, nothing proven to be fact. ( there's more )
If you're >still< interested in a inexpensive, high performance optical ignition solution for your bike, and you're not find it elsewhere from this board, and want it from me in particular, then continue following my high performance threads here on this board.

When time allows for it, I will show you how to assemble your own.
Until then, enjoy what you have and ride safe.

i doubt anyone will be interested in what you have to say about anything, if you are unwilling to answer simple questions, on comments or claims that you make,

regardless of what you do, the claim and the question stands

an easy goog shows the above quote coming from cm85 and is in reference to a c5 ignition system available for early GWs
http://www.c5ignitions.com/motorcycle-ignitions.html

i would love to run a c5 type ignition that apparently can be easily replicated diy for under 50 bux,

please provide the details?

the topic is after all

In the evolving course of this thread I will when time allows for it.
Replicating a comparable ignition is quite involved no matter the dollar value attached to it.

Again, when I've time for it.
It's quite involved and I've much going on right now that does not afford the time necessary to walk anyone through it.
Bashing me or this forum won't make it happen any sooner, so please stop doing it.

I kinda like the ignition system that I have that completely got rid of the 34 year old vacuum advance, pulse generators, igniters, coils, and wiring... Something tells me that nothing you post in the evolving course of this thread will come close to it or meet the price points that you previously bragged about, but hey, I have been to Missouri a few times, so as the saying goes: Show Me.

and has no time to post any findings or even parts used such as the type of coils etc. ???
hopefully , we dont wait too long.
this one is about gl1000 & related stuff according to the title and this section is very new, i think they are trying to move forward from extremely long reads to get info , which is all i can point you to for your 1200,

https://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/...1200s-too.html

https://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/...ter-spark.html

searching is way better tho can also end up in more of the same, you might find a separate thread where an individual provides a nice easy reading focused thread with all info related to what they are doing that ideally is inline with what you are looking for or interested in
