      Hi All
      Just joined, I would appreciate any feedback on the 12v vape ignition system, is it worth doing this mod ? If anyone has experience of fitting one and what difference this made to your machine as apposed to the original 6V I’d be grateful
      Many thanks

      Hi Sean,
      The vape system is very stable. I would say it’s one of the best upgrades you can do. I have used them on all my mz bikes and will be fitting one to my dkw.
      I ran one on a ts250/1 for 20 years as daily transport without a problem. I would suggest the battery option and keep it charged up if you don’t use the bike often. I fitted the coil to the front facing side of the battery holder and the regulator underneath the holder. Only four small holes and a neat install. Well worth the time. Just follow the instructions take your time.

      For the sake of balance, the coil died on my vape-fitted Ts125 leaving me stranded
      Replacement coils are about half the cost of a new kit
      I went back to 6v. At least points condensers and coils are cheap enough to carry spares
      In fairness, the 12v conversion was brilliant whilst it lasted, but the cost of a replacement coil just annoyed me
