Not sure what you are asking the 1100's all have electronic "points" IE no points! the advancer is part of that assembly..it can be cleaned, adjusted a bit or replaced as a unit.
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,

You could probably replace the advancer with a cable, ala pre-war British bikes, though a couple might think that a regression...

Yes its part...the mechanical advance moves the timing to somewhere near 23* BTDC and the vacuum moves it the rest of the way to over 30* BTDC....
Note: there is NO vacuum on the line at a idle(1000 rpm)...It starts to shows a vacuum near 1500 RPM and then only goes up to 4'' at 3500 rpm

most work in that area requires engine removal or via swingarm fuel tank removal
