Always used to use Boyer back in the 80's & 90's, don't think there were too many other options at that time. Never ever had a problem with at least 3 of the Triples I converted to them. I certainly would never by choice use the standard points ignition.
I'm now rebuilding a couple of A65's and am going to use the Tri Spark unit.
They have a non backfire timing advance to make kick starting easier, hoping this works out okay as I've had 2 knee replacements on the RH knee

Hi Piero.
I've had a Pazon unit in my A65 for quite a while now. Can't remember how long exactly but I bought it not long after they started making them. Has been trouble free and starts very easily. Doesn't mind low voltage(compared to Boyer) and comes with a long warranty. About 7 years I think(don't remember how long exactly but it is probably out of warranty period).

GARDNER carbs were semi ' injection ' . :mrgreen:

Ya NEED the 30 degree ignition . NOT a 24 degree .

Combo BSA / Norton points units o.k. BSA advance & 10 ca backplate .
The Japanese response to ' styling ' , was to add more .

Switched from Boyer Mark III to new Pazon. Easier starting.

Hi.
On my Commando i always use Pazon.
On my R3 i use a Boyer MK 3 with a single phase power box and three 4 V coils.
I thought to use Boyer on my A 65 because the bike has two 12 V coils and Pazon dont love 12 V!
Thank you.
Piero
