    I read many of the post and question why such a fuss with ignition points?  Unless originality is a must...

   I discarded the points on all of my internal combustion collection.  Parts for pointless ignition can be free for the taking or inexpensive from eBay.

   Ignition for a two stroke is a straight forward tasks and pointless, once completed, very reliable.  The pic is my RD200 retro.  The pick-up and reluctor came from a Geo-Metro (Toyota?) distributor given to me from a mechanic who scraps them when the bushing wear.  I ground off two of the bumps and used the original Yamaha points base to secure the pick-up. I also used the original keyed point lobe to secure the reluctor.  Some welding was required for the bracket and reluctor.

   The ignition control was from a Yamaha SRX250 (sorry no pic, it"s beneath the fuel tank) and the ignition coil was a two lead from a Yamaha four cyl.  I forgot which model though probably a FZR6 with different plug caps.  For simplicity I used the wasted spark format.  Never mind the generator that is for another time.
