Has anyone converted an 1100 EFI engine to carbs and used an Ignitech ignition? I was wondering if you used the original pickup?

I know there are other ignitions out there but I particularly want to use it as I have a spare TCIP4 unit.

Also, what does the original pickup use to trigger? is it a missing tooth?

A bunch of riders here in States have done this mod using part of ECU for timing.
The cam sensor for timing does pic up a tooth or more that is missing on the camwheel.
Get a shop manual it's all in there.

The Ignitech plugs into the stock cam sensor connector. Yes, it 'reads' off the missing tooth cam wheel. Contact Ignitech, they will be able to help you further and are conversant in English. I just fitted one of their units.
