Timing and Points

Post by randomman02x »

Ive been reading about timing and setting the gaps on the points for the ignition but I just don't seem to get it at all. I'm trying to figure out how to set the gaps in relation to the piston strokes and just simply how to time the bike (76 gl1000) to make it run but I can never understand what they're explaining online. Can someone give me a simple dumbed down version on how to time a gl1000? I just don't seem to get it at all. :cry:
