My GL 1000 still has the original points system and I would like to install electronic ignition. Where's the best place to get it? How hard is the installation? Anything else I need to know?

I found a Dyna S ignition for $150. Is that the way to go?

Yep, and it's easy as pie to convert. Took me less than 30 minutes to do mine. $150 is a good price.

This is what I use on the CB550. You keep the points though.
Hondaman Ignition, very long thread, 8 pages.

It has never missed a beat for me.

I've had the Dyna III since my 76 was 1/2 a year old. The dwell and timing have never changed and the performance has always been tops!

I put a Dynatech S on my 79 a year ago. There were a few installation issues with getting the timing set spot on. No way to get the pickup units close enough together without a bit of grinding on the plastic cases. Hopefully the factory has taken care of that by now.

Once installed, be sure to set the timing with a strobe rather than statically because there was a 3 degree difference between the two methods. That's enough to have an effect on performance.

I'm very happy with the way it runs and with the fact that I'll never again have to deal with points and timing.

Cool! I plan to update my ignition to the Dyna S in the near future. Thanks for the replys!

They haven't taken care of this yet. Still have to grind or split the difference. I ground the first set. Ruined one module. Split the difference on the next.

That sucks to pay $120-$150 for a part and then have to grind on it and possibly ruin it. You would think that they would fix something like that asap. Thanks for the heads up!
