M01 magneto as fitted to 1957 NH.
This mag ran on the bike for 20 years without a hitch.
The bike has been dry stored for 12 years (last tax disc 12/2000). When stored away, the mag was functioning fine, fat juicy spark.
Now I'm just recommissioning to use again, but the mag is not functioning.
What has happened?
Has it lost magnetism from not being used?
Any other clues?
What to do:
1. Send this magneto to a specialist for overhaul.
2. Buy/fit electronic ignition kit. Needs 250 Ma at 12v. I have 12 v 7 A on the bike (12v converted a number of years ago)
Anybody got anything good/bad about electronic ign units?
Looks to replace complete points assembly but retaining the rotating spindle and adv/retard mechanism.
