I am wondering where to line up the coils on the flywheel when the engine is at TDC on the horizontal cylinder. I called ferracci and they said if I sent MY MOTOR to them they could help me. Otherwise they couldn't tell me. My question is what to I line my coil pickups to on the flywheel where are the magnetic pickup on the flywheel and the coil pickups lining up? Thanks!It sounds as if you have not installed the flywheel yet. I installed a lightweight Nichols Flywheel on a 2000 Monster 750 earlier this year. I have sense sold that bike and gave the paperwork instruction away with it. From the picture you have supplied they look exactly the same from what I remember. Again, this is working off memory. There is only one possible way for the flywheel itself to fit into the bike. There is an alignment peg (for a lack of a better name) that aligns the flywheel with the electrode. The instructions are clear about not moving or changing the electrode spacing, location or existing relationship. Long story short, it was pretty much plug and play and I did not have to do anything with TDC. I understand it is a different brand, and it might be different, but...... By the way, I loved the flywheel upgrade.,,,

I have a 1975 Yamaha dt400 it has a points ing. In it how do I set the timing and what is the settings for it? ?


Take off left sidecover,......Remove flywheel nut and washer. You'll probably need to put the bike in 4th or5th gear and get someone to stand on the rear brake as you remove flywheel nut and washer.......Screw the japanese flywheel removal tool into the flywheel.....tighten the center bolt of the tool till it firmly butts on crankshaft......Strike the center bolt of the flywheel tool semi-hard with a hammer to "shock" the tapered fit of the flywheel and shaft...... Tighten the center bolt of the tool a little and repeat till flywheel is dislodged......Gently remove flywheel. There are powerful magnets in the flywheel so hold onto it tightly as you gently draw it off the shaft......You'll see the points and condenser....... Remove them but when you put the new points in, the little washers must go on precisely like they were on with the old set of points,otherwise the points will be shunted to ground and you'll never get any spark......After you've installed the points gently replace the flywheel on the shaft being careful to make sure you're not smashing the rubbing block part of the points......Oh yeah there's a flywheel key imbedded in the shaft. It insures proper location of the flywheel in relation to the piston. Sometimes they'll shear or get deformed. Replace it if it needs it. The bike may still have spark if it is sheared, but it will be at the wrong time........Put flywheel on and tighten flywheel tight.. I mean tight. If you don't you'll shear the key. Don't strip-out the threads though......The points are adjusted thru the windows in the flywheel.. It's kind of a hassle until you've done it a bunch of times but what you do is rotate the flywheel and make sure the points are closed at the low part of the ramp on the flywheel. Slowly rotate the flywheel and you'll see the points opening. The goal is to have the points break open at the same time the marks on the flywheel line up with the reference point on the engine.. The points have a little slot usually that helps you open and close the point gap. Basically the larger the gap=advances the timing.......the smaller the gap= retards the timing........ Good Luck

Does the #1 piston have to be on tdc before replacing the cams in my 2006 harley sportster which is the #1


No, completely ignore any marks on the flywheels. These are for ignition timing only. Align the cams using the mark on the pinion gear and the cams. The pinion gear mark must be aligned with the mark on the pinion shaft. Once this is on correctly, align the marks on the cams to the pinion gear and the other cams. Once the engine is back together. set the ignition timing using the flywheel marks. There is no #1 cylinder, this ain't an automotive engine. You have a front cylinder and a rear cylinder. All timing marks on the flywheel are for the front cylinder. Front cylinder top dead center and Front cylinder advanced timing marks.

Good Luck

Hi I have a 1985 Honda XL100 Id like to know the procedure for setting the ignition timing. I know how to set the points but its the timing I dont know. Is it the timing chain that I have to check...


if it create backfire the timing is not set properly, put the timing mark T of the flywheel to the center of the hole of the crankcase, be sure your in power stroke position.how to know that your in power stroke position get the cover of intake and exhaust valve then put the T of the flywheel on the center of the hole, then move the flywheel back and forth if you see that your valve is moving turn the flywheel another turn 360 degress and check the valve will not move that is already power stroke. that"s the time you can set your timing, center T on the hole and then the cam sprocket has a 0 put it on the top there is slash on the top of your cylinder center it.

1985XLH had to split cases how do you time time the crank with the cams


If the timing side is still open put the cams in one at a time just line up the timing marks.After they're all in,don't forget the marks on the breather,take the front piston to the top of stroke and check.All the marks should line up.If the engine is together just run the front piston to the top.Before it gets to the top start watching in the timing hole for a slot in the flywheel.Use a broad flathead screwdriver or small pry bar to fit into the slot and pry it to center of hole.You can set the distributer according to specs.You can go back to the flywheel mark an tweek the timing after you warm everything up.

Just put new crank and bearings in 05' rmz250. Got her put back together and she fired right up. problem is that she is filling up the flywheel housing completely full of oil and smoking out the exhaust....


Did you forget the crankshaft seal or install the wrong part behind the flywheel? It should be replaceable when the flywheel is pulled. I'm not sure what that has to do with blue smoke coming out of the exhaust. Did you over-oil the rings when you put it together? The smoke may clear itself after running a while. Other than fouling the plug and alerting the EPA, it won't hurt it to smoke a little while. Did you check to see that the oil level in the crankcase was correct?

Timing chain 110 hymoto pit bike


Put the piston at TDC (Top Dead Center) by lining up the timing marks on the flywheel and stator. Put the cylinder head back together with the cam installed so the high points of the cam lobes are pointing kind of downward. Pull the cam chain taught on the front side of the engine. Put the chain on the cam gear such that, when bolted to the cam, the index mark or marks are in the proper position.

The proper position depends on what markings are on the cam. Some bikes have a single mark; an arrow, a straight line or an "O". The mark should line up with the center-line of the crankshaft. If the cam has two marks opposite each other, the lines should be parallel with the gasket surface. You will need to rotate the unbolted cam left or right just a bit in order to match up the bolt holes to the gear holes.

Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

Find a manual by Googling " Motorcycle service manuals "
or go to www.repairmanuals.com

Installing new crank bearings is not a simple task. you will need a 3/8" impact driver, flywheel puller, case splitter and torque wrench. The top end comes off then the side cases, flywheel, flywheel electrics, clutch, shifter shaft, Crank drive gear and output shaft sprocket.

Split the case leaving the gears on the shafts and the shift drum and forks in place but out of the gearbox. Remove the crank and then remove the bearings from the crank or from the center casings depending on where they decide to stay when the case splits. Remove the crank seals from each center case half. Install new seals then install new bearings into the center casings.

Now just put everything back together.
By the way, now would be a good time to stick in a new output shaft (sprocket) bearing and seal. Be sure the OHC is timed correctly when installing the cam chain. Bad timing = bent valves.

1098 end caps on 996 exhaust?


You could get actual 1098 cans chop the pipes off weld a reducer on and then in turn weld that to your stock pipes... lotsa welding work though and its hard to find someone who'll do a really good job on stainless.,,,
