Hey guys on my 58 xl project bike i will be running a fixed base mag.I was just curious to know if any one was running the MRA-R unit from Morris that allows you to retard the mag to aid in starting.My last mag equipped bike had the advanced retard feature on the handle bars never had trouble starting that bike but that was also 50 years ago.Ok thanks for any thoughts on this

Bought a clear one from Morris a few seasons ago; but only recently got down to using it. Lovely piece of kit -- but unnecessary if you're otherwise stock.

This device makes a big difference when starting my K.
