Ditto that! If you don't want to get stuck somewhere with a dead engine you can't fix, go with Bruce's advice...

Cheeky monkey! Seriously...I like to ride..and I have endured many electronic voltage regulators...and the failure of every one of them...Is being extra careful inappropriate?

Hello Peter, Can you tell us who does your Mag', Cheers Bill.

Sean Hawker ( see www.hawkerelectrical.co.uk ). He is frustratingly slow and disorganised; but he does an extremely high quality job when he eventually gets around to it. Others may disagree - that's why they have a choice to go elsewhere.

I know Len gets his mags done by Sean too (I've met him in the queue on more than one occasion!). I guess that is why he is so fearful of going electronic......(?) Why would he want to? Len?
