Vespa scooter ignition?

Post by minkey » Wed Jun 09, 2004 5:40 pm

Does anyone have experience using the capacitive pickup with two stroke magnetos with points (as in most older Vespa scooters)? No battery.

Hi,

Thank you for your enquiry. I personally have never used a pickup lead on a scooters ignition system but I can't see why it would not work. If there is a high voltage going down the wire then the pickup should see it, its essentially a 10k:1 attenuator.

Best Regards,

You are much more likely to get answers about this on one of the sccoter forum such as this:
