Good morning guys!
I am just starting the wiring phase of my 1970 Triumph TR6R bobber project.

I purchased a KIT00284 / 281 Boyer unit that comes with a micro-power coil. This is a very compact set up and will fit nicely in to my custom battery/switch box.

As I want to run LED headlight and taillight bulbs, I want to run my wiring as a negative ground system. The Boyer instructions have a wiring diagram for negative ground installations, so I believe this is not an issue.

I have ordered a Podtronics regulator and will also wire this unit in with negative ground

Does anyone have any advice or challenge to this option?

Thank you

You can use a grounding kill switch, but ONLY if it is connected to one of the leads from the pickup, not to the black box.

Looks like you have the wrong Boyer; it's says "Norton" on it.

Should be a Triumph unit. I believe your advance will be wrong, as they rotate in opposite directions. I don't believe they'll work by simply swapping the trigger wires, but I have been known to be wrong before...

Make a proper harness with live and return wires, don't ever rely on the frame
