      Can anyone advise me on where I can obtain a replacement ignition system for my
      250 etz, preferable with English instuctions. Also any advise on fitting. Thanks,
      Mike.

      Hi Mike,

      Rich Warne’s article in the May-June edition of MZ Riders mag. Pages 42&43 refers to the tezet electronic ignition system. I’ve just purchased one from eBay for my ETZ251 and waiting to receive it. Hoping it gets the old bike started!

      Cheers, Chris

      Hi Mike,

      I’ve just fitted a tezet electronic ignition kit to my 1990 MZ251 ETZ, and with helpful advice from Bynzi and encouragement from others including the article by Rich Warne, I’m very pleased to say that it has transformed the bike from a non starter, not even a spark from the old set up, to an easy starter and now able to tweak the carburettor so that a sweet tick over has been achieved. No old coil, rectifier or old style regulator to worry about.
      If I hadn’t gone down this route I think I would have been thinking of passing the bike on as a project for someone who likes points ignition and the complexities that accompany it! Very much recommend you go this route.

      Further to the above post, MZ say not to over-rev when stationary but I haven’t anywhere to take the motorcycle before having it MOT tested. Is this likely to cause it damage, oil up the plug or whatever? My plug is a little oiled up after a short start up – is this likely to be because I’ve nowhere to take it for a run until after the MOT or might it indicate an ignition timing or carb problem as tick over not so easy to achieve after a few days.? The tezet electronic ignition I fitted is at the limit of its sensor adjustment at bottom upper left of the magneto, so I think it is in the best place for ignition timing (using the technology measuring device). Any observations welcomed.
