    i just spent 5 minutes checking those out. it's most commonly used as a replacement for the points ignition on Minarelli mopeds. they're made in china, and you can find them for 30 to 100 bucks.

    moped army forum reviews aren't very good. a bunch of people said they failed within a few miles.

    from what i just read, i'll stick with the stock one...

    We got that exact one to evaluate.....never could get it to work. $75? Wow - large mark up!!

    If there was a better alternative that didn't cost bazillions, we would carry it!!
