There should be 3 marks on the flywheel. As the flywheel turns counterclockwise, the first mark is the full advance timing mark. The next mark is the BTC timing mark. the third mark is the TDC mark. Set the points to .015 gap then use a timing light while rotating the base plate to line up the BTC mark at idle speed, 600 rpm. Now check the full advance timing mark at around 2000 rpm. The idle timing is not as important as the full advance timing. Hopefully the spark advancer is in good condition. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

I bought an old 1982 honda XL 125s and it has been starting first kick every time..


Hi, Jeff nice novella and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting, leaking, spark plug cable connections loose check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil or electronic control module.
7. Faulty CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
10. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

Honda Varadero 125. Not starting.


Hi !
First check if the current is coming from ignition coil....
If YES ... then the spark plug is burnt(shorted) Get new plugs.
If NO... then there could be a problem with the ignition coil itself Or the coil in the dynamo is burnt.... Regards

Brojen ignition switch


Inside the switch, there are two wires. Connect them together. This completes the circuit as if, the switch was set to run.
