    Is PAMCO done?

    I was trying to look up the PAMCO install instructions today (I had a paper copy and can't find it so I was going to DL a PDF), and it appears that the website is gone. http://www.cb450ignition.com/Index350.htm just returns a internal error code and then when you refresh the page, the godaddy stuff comes up saying that it "parked" (whatever that means). On his yamahaxs650 one, there is no option to buy anymore. Just curious if anyone knew something. It would be a shame since it has been great on my bike. I know there is a lot more competition out there now so maybe that drove it?

    Who knows? He's certainly been difficult to get hold of for those who've had troubles over the last couple years, so maybe he's done... if so, hopefully it's not because of his health. However, he'd be leaving quite a few people hanging...

    I see Mike's XS seems to be no longer selling the Pamco ignition, just a cheaper looking asian copy. Maybe he got tired of the whole thing and quit.

    Yeah, everywhere I have looked that had links to PAMCO products no longer has them (amazon, 4 into 1, ect).

    I guess that's it then... anyone with a dead unit that should/could be warrantied, put it on a plaque in the garage as a conversation piece. And for those who are running one right now... prayers for your unit's longevity. My points are... nevermind

    I would like to thank Pamco for convincing me that keeping the points in my CB450 was the way to go.

    Wow - I was trying to go the politically correct way... but I must say, I too was influenced toward keeping my points based on all the *ahem* discussions here

    I've always kept the points because I like to tinker with things, getting that fine hair tune just right just suits me for some really odd reason. Puts you more in touch with the machine, that and yeah you don't have to change out half the charging system just to protect sensitive electronics.

    ... hate to see things like this happen.. Pete saw a problem, developed, designed and built a system .. yes, execution may not have been the greatest.. but, he succeeded in my book.
    "necessity is the mother of invention.."
    Would have been great to see some rich guy invest in this..,eliminate the "bugs".. make Pete a few dollars for his work. Kinda what every inventor wants..
    Hope he is doing fine..
    I know not every "invention" needs developement..,Look at the "opti-grab"..started out great, Nathen Johnson(developer) eneded up moving back home.. broke
