that was my understanding too, but i recently talked to someone at a car show with a bsa running a boyer and no battery. I was going to go check out his bike and see exactly how he did it, but we didn't cross paths again. just checking to see if it is possible?hatch said:My understanding is that boyers need a battery, no matter what type of bike it is on.
I was wrong...copperbobber said:It is possible. I don't know if it's a good idea though. I had my Triumph set up like that for a while, with a Mity Max, and the Mity Max took a shit. I then went to a Portronics and it was a bitch to get running. You had to kick as hard as you could to get it to fire. Then my stator went to hell and I went back to battery.
