Your points will fire on the combustion and the exhaust stroke. Motorcycles use a wasted spark set up. The points will fire every time the piston approaches top dead center. Set the plate point set first(If there is a point set that you have to turn the mount plate to set). The plate set also times the motor. Then gap the second set.

Where can i buy a complete manual of a XS250 SPECIAL YICS. a manual to overhaul the engine and trouble shooting. thank you dan


Hi, Danielgallar the vast majority of service, parts, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 sometimes more and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, then there is eBay where you may be able to find what you need at a very high price because of its age and rarity. Most of the "FREE" manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have.
To download your manual please click on the blue links below. Good luck and have a wonderful day.

My deck cuts shoter on the rt,ie uneven


Check your tire pressures:
10 psi. for rear tires.
14 psi. for the front.

Note that according to MTD:
Making sharp right hand turns. Twin-blade mower decks are designed with the discharge on the right side and two side-by-side blades. The side-by-side twin blade decks have the left hand blade positioned slightly forward and in front of the right blade. This provides cutting overlap when traveling in a straight line. As a result, the tractor should mainly operated making primarily left hand turns when cutting. During left turns this cutting overlap is maintained. If turning right when, it is possible to negate this overlap and leave an uncut strip.

Tag Carrera Twin time , second hour hand is not staying at time


The second time zone hand is running on a 24 hour face (right hand half of face is morning, left hand half of face is afternoon/evening) so all you need do is multiply what it points at by two. As an example, if your second time zone hand is pointing to the right (3 o'clock) then it represents 6am and if it is pointing to the left (9 o'clock) then it represents 6pm [9 x 2 = 18:00]
