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 or is there something else? It fires and backfires in the carb. Thanks Marc

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.

I NEED TO TIME MY MOTO GUZZI LEMANS 2 AND NEED TO KNOW WHICH IS THE BEST ELECTRONIC IGNITION SYSTEM TO BUY AND TO FIT HAVE OLD 1985 LUCAS RITA IGNITION BUT ITS OLD AND MAY NOT BE RELIABLE


Try a Dyna ignition out of the States. Well made, reliable, easy to fit and should be supported should any problems arise (unlikely). A good habit is to keep a set of points ,set up on the backing plate, under the seat of any Moto Guzzi.

Hi, Doug and the usual suspects are:
1. Clutch not adjusted properly.
2. Primary chaincase overfilled with lubricant.

8. Shifter pawl needs adjusting.
9. Heel/toe shifter coming in contact with the floorboard.
