I'm new here so I guess I should pick a fight with the baddest cat here (please identify yourself) and get it over with.
Anyone try the Mikes XS's PMA kit? He's got one for older and newer 650's and doesn't say anything about modifying the ignition (TCI) to get it to work. I know nothing about electrics, m'cycles or computers, but I rode a new 1980 special in 1980 and got a jones for one about 4 yrs ago. The charging sys doesn't work anymore (I changed the brushes). I keep it on a battery tender and ride once a season, but mostly stare at it on the way to my car. Last 2 times I rode it died much too soon, even with a new battery, so I've been toying with doing this mod for awhile now. I've got the time, but not the balls. Especially when I realized it didn't end there, but needed a pamco ign swap as well. My fear is that I'll buy the parts and find a loose wire that's causing the problem. Hell, it's only 31yrs old. I'm 68 and my parts are fine. Except for lower back, 2 knees, and a few other minor life threatening issues. Cheers all.
