Would my 1992 Yamaha 2 stroke enduro dirt bike run?? Kick start, no battery, it has lights , probably ? magneto driven. Been meaning to build a piece of channel steel that plugs into the bus hitch receiver so it travels with me, I don't pull a toad.

doubt it.  you would most likely have to go back to point ignition. The early solid state ignition had some weak transistors in them and were a lot of trouble.

They were sealed and just had to replace the whole thing. expensive then.

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

Just be sure you don't have steel toed shoes cause that EMP will just blow them right off your feet.
