Hi there,
I'm getting a new ignition for my commando and am tossing up between tri-spark 'classic twin' or the pazon smartfire.

The tri-spark seems like a good simple to install design - i talked to the bloke today and he mentioned that it auto retards the ignition during starting to avoid kickback, then advances again as soon as the engine fires. Does anyone know if the pazon does this? I'm in Australia and the cost between the two is about the same by the time I get some 6V coils to suit the tri-spark (approx $400AUD).

I like that the pazon kit is complete (it comes with coils, leads ect) but I like the simplicity of the tri-spark (no black box, simple install). Can anyone with experience of either share their thoughts?

I recently installed Pazon in my 850 Commando '73 (MkI). *Very* satisfied. Smooth runner. Installation as Boyer. Good spark, little voltage (guess you will read the spec).

regards

I too installed the pazon, and while i can't comment on the tri-spark, the pazon is worlds better than the Boyer -

Could you elaborate what you mean by this please? Do you mean it works well with a low voltage or it uses little current?
