Today's modern fuel is low octane and lead-free, causing classic motorcycle engines to run hot, leading to poor performance and ride.
Every time you climb a hill there's that sound again, she's pinking, so you ease off the throttle like you always do. Now you're losing power, so you have to change down a gear. Just one effect of this modern fuel.
The original points, bob weights & springs were fine in their day, but with today's fuel, ignition timing has become more important. A spark that's timed too early ('advanced') causes combustion knock, which is damaging to the engine. A spark that's too late ('retarded') loses power and increases fuel consumption & emissions.
We were the management and technical team that successfully ran Boyer Bransden until 2004, when we decided to forge our own path. We felt that classic bikes and their owners deserved a higher quality product and service. We've spent the first 18 months on research & development of new products, listening to bikers and putting their needs first.

"I became resigned to treating my bike gently for ever more"
BSA Starfire, fitted with
the PAZON Sure-Fire Single Ignition System
I'd previously spent months trying to get the timing right on my BSA Starfire. In the end I grimly
accepted that modern fuels and additives must mean I would always suffer from overheating and
pinking in some part or other of the rev range. I became resigned to treating the bike gently for
ever more and always using low throttle openings. Almost as a last resort I brought your electronic
ignition and was simply stunned at the transformation in the bike. It now runs like a turbine all
through the rev range, with much more power, no overheating, much easier starting and infinitely
better idling. A much happier machine basically and one which now likes to be ridden properly.
Thanks Andy and Pazon

Twinplug Head Ignition System
The more I ride the Egli with the new ignition system the more amazed I am. It starts so easy, idles
nice and doesn’t misfire at mid range. It has become one of my favorite old bikes to ride. In the past
I had 2 different manufacturers of ignition systems on it. After continually having trouble we were led
to believe the problem was in the carburetion which we spent a lot of hours on, and all that time it
was the ignition system. As I indicated in a previous email, this motorcycle is now truly awesome.

"Andy, I will sing your praises.
Your Energy booster has galvanized this MZ 125.
It took about 2 hours to attach (I was being careful), and starting has been transformed from
the regulation 37 kicks/collapse over the seat gasping, to one gentle prod! Even my mate
Dave's eyebrows went up and they are nailed down usually!
Mid range is up and hill climbing is a giggle.
Downside is I've got to watch the speed limits.
You can quote me if you want - the damn thing's brilliant!
P.S. If you have stickers I would be happy to pay postage. I can't really stick go faster stripes on
an East German commuter but 'Ignition by PAZON' or some such would be impressive."
Note: the MZ was fitted with a Negative Earth type Energy Booster
