    hi all must tell you how incredible the pamco electronic ignition, which was released earlier this year is.I purchased the pamco ignition system from pamco pete in America,he is a member on this forum. he has been supplying the kit for the xs650 for years,and has developed this kit for the xs400.
    I own a 1981 xs400se and was fed up constantly setting points due to various reasons,the most common being points slipping.
    my bike would tick over lovely when they were set,but this never lasted I always new when the points had moved,due to bike cutting out at traffic lights etc.
    I cannot stress how amazing the pamco electronic ignition is.the kit is simple to fit comes with clear instructions and will transform your bike,after fitting my kit from the moment I started the bike I noticed the difference.my xs sounded much healthier and ticked over so strongly without hesitation.When I drove bike after kit fitted I was amazed,she took off and sounded incredible.I checked timing with strobe light after 500 miles and was still spot on,hadnt budged.
    I have now covered 0ver 2000 miles and haven't missed a beat,bike starts first time every time,ticks over perfectly never cuts out.Also mpg has gone up a lot,she uses much less petrol and I get a lovely plug colour due to pamco kit.
    Will never go back to original points,the performance increase is very noticeable.
    Take my advise don't even think about it,buy it,fit,and enjoy just riding a much enhanced bike.
    Pete is a genius and would like to thank him for developing this for the xs400,remember he has proven this system on the xs650 for years.cheers pete.

    I'm hoping to echo steen178's long term experience as I've just installed mine yesterday. Hadn't even really had mine running, just a quick few startups and idling. I had mine torn apart to do the first oil change, valve adjustments and chose to do it then. Very thoughtful design and easy installation. Afterward it started like a charm and I finally rode the beasty! Very smooth and zero stumbling.

    Since I no longer need to remove the generator cover to mess with the points, I wanted an easy way to check the timing without having to pull it. So I made a sight port in the cover.

    I'm trying to get PAMCO ignition. The order was placed and paid, but no ignition arrived yet... Its a month now.. It should go to Europe, but it is way too long even counting the distance in. I was trying to get track and trace number from PamcoPete providing him my credentials and pyapal transaction number, with no luck. Pete stopped responding. I have my doubts about ever seeing either my ignition or my money. Anyone has similiar problems or is it just coincidence in my case?

    No reply here or by email since last time you showed up here, pamcopete. A friend of mine who ordered your product way later then me already has it home. Something must went wrong.

    story continues...

    I emailed @pamcopete i want my money back. No ignition arrived, i was unable to get a tracking number from him and still no luck of getting an answer. Seems like i have lost my money. Its like talking to a stone. Maybe he has a vacations or something, but this is not the way the business should be made.
    Think twice when ordering pamco ignition

    I'll go with newtronic ignition
