Just a question out of curiosity, really.

I have a 2007 Ural 750 with the Ducati ignition.  

I recently had a hall sensor failure leaving me stranded.  I though I was just unlucky.  
A little later another 750 owner in another part of this country had a similar problem which was discussed on this forum: same culprit, the Hall sensor.

Finally, the gentleman from whom I bought my bike had retro fitted a Ducati system to his 2005 Dalesman 750.  His ignition recently threw in the towel and he has now returned to the original ignition system.  

The 3 750 Urals I know of in Estonia have all had the same problem...  

Just coincidence, or part of a bigger problem?

So, if you run the Ducati ignition, have you had any problems related to it??

No problems for two years on my Ducati. I replaced my ignition system on my 2003 Ural Patrol in 2008. So far it looks good.

I had 2 fail.  I went to the Power arc and now switched back to the Ducati because it handle dirt and water so much better than the Power Arc.

Is that a number for the pick up or the whole harness and pick up?  I can not find it on the search.

Now that looks like a handy piece of information!!  

Thanks!

Any extra info you have such as Qball's question would be great!!

For my part, I can say that the same part from a Volga car also fits, but you have to cut the wires, splice and solder them to the superseal connector wires used on the original Ural ignition Hall sensor.  For those of you with Volga garage access (OK, not many), this is also an alternative...

Not sure how that helps as the Russkies also use a hall sensor.

On those sensors that have failed was it the sensor itself or the wiring that failed?  BMW oilheads have a problem with the insulation on the wiring breaking down due to heat.
The shortest distance between two points is boring.

In my case it appeared to be the sensor: wiring was fine.
