I wanted to upgrade the ignition on my 07 YZ450F but not sure on what would be best. Any ideas?

Trying to get more power throughout the throttle range if possible. I guess more in the low end is what I'm looking for. I will be sending my carb to zip ty and just looking for a little more. Thanks.

Then you'll want an ignition that allows the selection of alternate timing maps, such as the Vortex.

I had a Vortex on my 04 and I must admit it really worked. However, if money is an issue for you, I don`t think it is worth 400 bucks. I was lucky to have it with my bike when I bought it.
