More observations on electronic ignition. Peter Scott also fitted an electronic magneto to his Scott which has a long stroke engine,[ mine is short stroke] and although only riden a short distance the standard ignition advance seems to be OK which seems to bare out what Brian Marshall stated that the short stroke engine is more sensitive to ignition advance than the long stroke engine.
I found it also seems that any gas flow improvment work on a short stroke engine makes it even more sensitive.
