The 1200 series magneto is among the most powerful available
Yep,that's why I chose it.
It's not as heavy as the D2000 it replaced! Don't forget a 1200 series is half the physical size of a D2000/3000 and you have also removed the heavy impulse coupling.
I personally donít feel great about the frankenmag setup
It's not really a "frankenmag"setup. The H2AD doesn't know if the single drive shaft is working with and firing one coil or two. The drive dimensions and fit up are identical to the D2000/3000.
Any 1200 series four cylinder impulse coupling type (ie,long shaft) mag can be made work by simply installing the correct points for right hand rotation and replacing the impulse coupling with a drive coupling and resetting the internal timing.
Starting is via the EI only with this setup though.
I'm currently running a 1200 series in the mag hole and a CPI for the second ignition on my H2AD with good results. All up there is no weight increase to speak of.
