Kudos to S + S Ignition systems!
« on: March 10, 2015, 12:18:05 AM »
Hi Everyone,
I have been having a lot of trouble getting my newly completed Gade engine to start and run. I had a transistor ignition with a mini coil, but it just didn't put out much spark and it was very inconsistent. I ordered an S + S buzz coil CDI unit on Saturday. and it arrived on Monday! I wired it up and the engine started right up and ran perfectly. I am very happy! Now I can show a running engine at the Cabin Fever show.
Thanks for a great product and super fast shipping, S + S !

That is great Scott!!  The success stories with S+S modules seem to be growing by the day and Roy provides excellent service. Usual disclaimer...just another satisfied customer, etc. I will look forward to seeing this little beauty at CF.

Looking forward to seeing it at the show!  I used one of Roy's modules on a crazy 1950 Japanese Trike/Motorcycle.  If anyone ever talked motorcycles with George Luhr's, he would usually bring out a picture of these crazy bike.  He thought he'd never see it run, so a few years ago I grabbed it from him, rebuilt the motor and 8 months later he was riding around in it at Rough and Tumble.  The ignition was a disaster so I talked to Roy and got a model airplane module and a nice coil we thought would work.  Timed it and the 636cc big single started on the first kick!  Always had nice hot spark since!

Although my ignition system from Roy is still in the box, I'm sure that it will be just as good as everyone says. I spoke to Roy when I ordered and asked him if there was anything I needed to watch.
I got a 10 minute explanation of everything from grounding to magnet placement.
That's great customer service.
Best,
Stan

Stan it worked for me right out of the box and continues to reliably even now. The little Briggs ran flawlessly off and on all day Saturday at the show. I am sure yours will also on the Farm Boy.
