    Actually 2 issues:
    1. I installed the electronic ignition and got the bike running. Had to reverse polarity to get it to run at all. But it does not seem to want to really rev up as high as before. Also, do I need to cut the condenser out of the circuit?

    2. I can only run the whizzer with the choke fully closed and only when it is hot can I barely open the choke a little bit.

    I know nothing about your setup, but usually if the choke is needed to run, then you have something causing a lean condition, not an ignition problem.
