Why didnt you buy a Dyna S? Set it and forget it!

cheers
Andy

because they have been known to overheat and fail leaving you stranded.   Wink

K4; 12 yrs and still going strong, K2; 8 yrs. Rather do that than mess with points all the time  Wink

I've read negative reviews on a lot of the more recent Dyna units. I haven't had a problem with points and don't mind it when paired with the transistorized ignition, as on my 550.

The dyna unit that I put in the 400 failed after about 4 years, (although I wouldn't discount my mechanical attitude as being a possible factor), and I put in the circuit board style one from david silver. Works fine so far, time will tell. But I always have hated trying to adjust points, stripping the screw heads, all that crap. It's an art I don't seem to relate to.

Good to hear that the 750 lives!

I also read they resolved that issue but hey whatever works for you  Cool Id use Pamco or Dyna over points any day but thats just my preference (and being like Vintage P I never got the whole setting the points thing Wink)

Great stuff Alex and glad you and Anders got everything fixed while the peanut gallery looked on Wink Sorry to have missed it!

cheers
Andy

What are you talking about? Anders was sipping coffee while Treeve was trying to teach him to adjust points and I was rerouting the brake lines. I cannot recall what Alex was doing. In fact I am not sure he was there. Oh! May be he was out looking for an electronic ignition Huh?
Yeah, you should've come and helped!

I was running the stairs for exercise while taking breaks to only give Anders another surprise task to curse.
Treeve was hitting anything he could find with his self-proclaimed "man-hands".
Peter was pointing and laughing a lot in an attempt to insert enough humor into his day before leaving for work.
Anders was pure comedy per usual.

Installed new throttle cables from Honda. Wow, what a difference fresh cables make. Everything is really "snappy".

Also installed new points plate but timing is a bit crude due to my timing light bulb being blown. Anyone got a timing light locally that I could use? The bike runs fine as-is but I'd like to tune it in fully.

I'll post a new thread if this question doesn't make it out to the larger forum population. Cheesy

Congrats! Did you buy Honda cables?
I have no bikes with points, and unfortunately no timing light to lend. Sorry!

I did go with Honda cables. Very happy so far. Timing will be another check mark on the list. I'd like to go through the bike and do all the maintenance stuff because the damn thing deserves it at this point.

Thanks for the reply Ben. Hope to see you soon.

I appreciate that Mike. Hopefully I'll have some time over the next few weeks to run over and grab it or (weather-pending) ride over and use it. I'll stay in touch.
