I believe it's 0.3 - 0.4mm or .012 - .016"
"It´s a friggen motorcycle, it´s not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you s**t your pants every now and then. "

That's right,but be aware that you adjust one set then adjust the back plate for proper timing.Then you adjust the gap for proper timing on the 2nd set.do not re-adjust the backplate.If the final gap is out of specs you have to compensate on the first set and re-adjust again.The final should be .012-.016 on both points and opening at the proper marks.I use a test light on the points.Virgil
