A two part reply.

Firstly, why replace the BMW beancan? There are 2 major reasons for doing this, firstly to get rid of the mechanical advance and retard, and secondly because they are old
 The last time I set out to rebuild a beancan I found the bushes were all worn, the ADV/RTD springs were slack and the posts they mounted to were worn. All perfectly repairable and done properly the rebuilt beancan will outlast all of us.

But, I get more pleasure riding my bike than I do merely working on them so it was a no-brainer to update.

Like others I still carry a carefully hoarded "points in a can" beancan in case I need a "get me home". But I may stop that now and simply carry a spare hall effect as I reckon I could change that in under 30 minutes. In fact I might even pre-fit one and that way all I would need to do is flip the switch on the Wedgetail ICU..

The only way to currently buy is via your regional distributor, or if there isn't one, by emailing the manufacturers.
