Points Cap Cut Out

Points Cap Cut Out

(for Lucas face cam magnetos including MO1 and N1 models) 
These magnetos do not have a facility for an ignition cut out – until now! Following numerous enquiries from our customers over the years we have now developed a neat, reliable modification to enable a cut out to be fitted to your machine.
The system involves a new points cap modified to carry an insulated stainless steel stud which, in turn, houses a spring loaded carbon brush. The stud carries a ring terminal with approximately six feet of wire. The stud and electrical connection is then covered in a plastic cap with the whole arrangement held in place by a lengthened stainless steel points cap clip. Three types of points cap clip are available. For MO1 magdynos, if the clip is fitted in the top left hand corner (as in the picture), choose the short MO1 clip. The long MO1 clip is fitted in the top right hand corner. The third type of clip is designed for the N1 range of magnetos.
IMPORTANT: Please make sure that there is sufficient room for the increased depth of this modification - on some machines the magneto points cap is very close to the inside edge of the primary chain case. The plastic cap is 22mm in diameter and the depth of the plastic cap and clip is 18mm. To keep the increased depth to a minimum, our new clips do not have the curled end as seen on the originals. This picture shows an original clip resting on top of our new one to illustrate the differences.

My bike has not had an ignition cut out for the last 40-50 years - why do I need one now?
There are several good reasons worth considering:
Use it to stop the engine safely: it’s true that the engine can be stopped by using the valve lifter. However, at higher revs there is a risk of causing damage to the valve lifter and/or the valve mechanism itself. What if the throttle sticks wide open?....... Run the cut out wire to a handlebar mounted push button switch. (Switch not included)
Use it to comply with racing regulations: an ignition cut out is a requirement in most forms of motorcycle competition. Run the cut out wire to the lanyard operated switch. (Switch not included)
Use it as a security device: most machines fitted with these magnetos had no security measures fitted as standard. Run the cut out wire to a hidden switch or perhaps a key operated ignition switch. (Switch not included)
Use it as a safety device: do you like to use an on/off tap in the oil line to prevent wet sumping? If the cut out wire is fed to a modified oil tap fitted with electrical contact points, it will prevent the engine being started without remembering to switch on the oil tap first. (Switch not included)
