That's good to know as I just stuck an Ultima in last night. Bike a bit sweeter round town, not that it was bad before. VOES now operational so I'll be interested to see how the fuel economy goes.

Just reading this post. Haven't been here in a while. I too am running the mechanical advance and mag pickup. No idea why the PO removed the stock setup on my 85. But have yet to switch over to the Ultima. Dang thing is running too well except for headlight issues which is wiring.
