timing issue

Postby baz66 » Sun Oct 23, 2011 4:54 am



hi thanks for the advice on my earlier posting i have checked all issues over and over again
when i check the spark at the plugs it seem as there is to many sparks (looks random sparkin) for the speed the engine turning over (on the starter button) is there a chance the pulse generator could be doin this. or what could it be ??? i did ride it before takin it to pieces and had no ignition problems i only took engine out to check clutch and change starter chain any help would much appreciated thanks.

Remember,It only uses 2 coils,so each plug will fire not only on 10 degrees BTDC compression stroke but at 10 degrees BTDC exhaust stroke.Its called wasted spark.

For fun you could pull off the left timing belt cover.Use White Out to mark the pulley and casting(the marks used for belt timing) Throw a ignition strobe light on the left.....uh...front? plug wire.Crank the engine and look at the timing flash.

thanks for that info now i realy dont know whats going on
set the crank to the t1 position. cams set at the corect position shown in manual
ive checked ignition timing at f1 the lobe contact is spot on inlign with other contact at about the
8 oclock position looking from rear of the engine. cant see that ignition can be wrong as it all has location positions when assembling
still geting pops and bangs out carbs and exhaust

It may be Ignition wires in the wrong place.Here's a pix of the correct wiring.
