Try a look at http://www.nightrider.com/ . In the mean time and whilst it is loading, a few thoughts;

A lot of folks in the club know far more about Shovels than me.
But from my own observations and experiences....and asking around over the years. And now thatI have a points bike:

POINTS are good, can be reliable, but do wear out. the good news is that you will get warning, as components (weights etc) slowly disintegrate. Bike will start to run rough, hard to kick. Points are cheap, you can replace at side of road.

Those who religiously stick to points always use the ''side of the road'' argument. This seems mostly to stem from the late 1978 through the early 1980s when Harley first developed electronic ignitions. And frankly, their first efforts sucked, by general consensus. But since the advent of the Evo's V-Fire III version the factory and aftermarket ignitions have been fairly bulletproof for tens of thousands of miles.

CRANE Hi4 is but one of several aftermarket ignition systems that can retrofit into nosecone (or externally) on points-equipped or factory-ignition Evos and Shovels. Others like Daytona, Dyna, TwinTec, etc. I only know the Hi4, so....

The Crane has a switch that allows very easy kickstarting. When set thus, the plugs attempt to fire on the first turn of the flywheels, as opposed to the stock set-up which only fires after the flywheels turn a couple of times. That makes an Evo, for instance, very tough to kickstart if fitted with kicker and stock ignition.

With good plugs and even just static timed (there is an LED on the module that permits this), the Hi4 is brilliant. Worked so well on my 4spd Evo i actually removed all electric start parts 7-8 years ago.

There were a few issues on some early nosecone Hi4 modules that overheated, but I never that that prob.

After ten years and 50,000 miles, my first Hi4 failed 2-3 years ago. I got some help from the Crane tech line, and diagnosed it, put the results in Tech Tips on this site.

The replacement took 20min to fix, i just put it in the same (timing) spot as the first one, and bike kicked up 2nd attempt.

The absolute beauty of the Crane Hi4 is set and FORGET. Until it did die, i never even had to open the points cover. It always kickstarted, unless other factors weighed in.

My Wide Glide has points, but I am just about to pull them for a Hi4.

The guys at the one Shovel bazaar here in Melbourne endlessly recommend fitting a Hi4. They all have them in their own bikes, and when asked their opinion of points they say: ''comparatively? ****. There is no need to run points these days.''

Everyone has an opinion on this of course. But I am going for total peace of mind. I'll no doubt be on the roadside due to something else on the Shovel some day, so i may as well eliminate potential problems......
