people say that occasionally the boyers were crossed inside during assembly. maybe the pickup wires were backwards in the first place to correct this and i put them wrong by matching the colors up. it's an old analog, for sure. can't read much on the box anymore.

i took it out on the gravel roads and hay fields a few days ago and burned up a half tank of gasoline about as fast as it would burn. then the next day i woke up feeling like someone had worked me over with a baseball bat.

if i'd known getting old would be so difficult i would have gotten started earlier.


Into the distance a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction is holding me fast how
How can I escape this irresistible grasp?

I could not have stated that sentiment any better!

My old red Boyer circa 2000 runs fine with 6V coils ( twin),if the leads are reversed it puts the timing miles out and creates a bang in the exhaust pipe.
Boyer used to offer a great service, return the box to the Factory with some cash for postage and they would send back a working unit if it was faulty. Dont know if this still applies. i never used it but others certainly did.
