I haven’t heard of this make, and I think that you ought to ask one or two questions of the makers, like, “This will be going on a two-stroke, where the magneto has to run at engine speed, rather than the half engine speed of a four-stroke application. Will it be up to sparking two cylinders at 180 degrees to one another at a magneto speed of up to 5000 rpm, which is the equivalent of 10,000 rpm engine speed on a four-stroke ?” You could also ask “Does it produce a ‘wasted spark’ near to Bottom Dead-Centre ?” You do NOT want that happening in a two-stroke application.
