Hi. Apparently test running my A65 causes interference with the neighbor’s TV signal. I E fitted a Pazon electronic ignition.

Aside from moving, can I fix it?

No room under patio for bodies so quick fix won’t work.

Would suppressor plug caps be an outrageous suggestion?

The RFI on these old bikes shouldn’t be enough to effect modern digital tv transmissions, it used to effect the old analogue transmissions quite severely.

Either way… as triton thrasher says… fit suppressed plug caps

It does depend on whether you like your neighbours or not.

If you don't like them, view it as an electronic two fingers up, every time you start up. If it was my neighbours, that would give me endless joy! laughing

Otherwise, yeah, suppressed plug caps are probably the way to go. Maybe treat yourself to some obnoxiously loud "silencers" at the same time.

The MAG ignition sure does affect TVs (no idea about electronic ignition ) my neighbor 30 meters away in a straight line recons his picture totally gives up when i start the mighty A10... i explained i couldn't to a thing about it and hes fine I just start it during the day now, HOWEVER my previous neighbor ( a blow hard yuppy) soon connected his obnoxious behavior with my letting the M20 idol through the sports news ,,,

as regards the lack of space John Wayne Casey managed something like 27 in his crawl space 2 or 3 under a concrete slab and another 1 in the lawn before he ran out of space and just used the river ... i dont buy that you cant fit 1

Yeah it’s about not actually leaving it running. It’s inconvenient being polite. But space is a real issue. We don’t have the luxury of crawl spaces here. So without that your chap is a bit of an amateur. Even our Fred West managed 9 in the house and garden. Hopefully the new caps will fix it. I can’t be doing with this digging

well ok then ...if you are limited by space to that degree and consider John Gasey and amature possibly you could use the Jeffrey Dahmer approach and get a large drum of acid
