Raise the rear wheel of the bike off the ground, shift the transmission into fourth gear, remove the spark plugs and bump the rear tire in the normal direction of rotation until the points open as wide as they will, Usually, there is a mark on the break cam that indicates where this point is. Get the fiber cam follower right on this mark. Loosen the points screw and set the points at 0.020". If you're setting a used set of points, burnish any raised area on the points with a points file to get them smooth. Once you get the point set, shift the transmission back to neutral, reinstall the spark plugs and lower the bike.

Good Luck

I have a 77rd400 and the left cylinder is missing and after running it for a couple of minutes the right cylinder gets hot but the one that is missing doesn' get hot at all. Thanks Eric

Hi,there is a fuw resons for this,most likely is that there is no spark,so first of all take the spark plug out of the sparkpluge hole put it back in the h,t,lead and put the electrode of the sparkplug nexst to the engine and kick it over to see if there is a good spark,(I would say that there isnt a spark)if not,then I he would say that the nexst step is to take off the round cover off on the left hand side if you are sitting on the bike,I think 3 or 4 screws or alan key bolts if they have bean replaced,now again put ignision on and try kicking it over to see if there is a spark,(some had electronic egnition,some had pionts and condenser)if you get a spark on 1 set of pionts and not the other,replace bothe pionts and condensers,if you have a spark on bothe the pionts then its iver the coil or h,t,lead braking down,(sorry I forgot to mention if there is a spark when first testing the sparkplug,then its iver a blocked jet in the carb,and if not a blocked jet then you would have to give it a conpression test to see if there is eney internal damage),I would put my money on the spark,well I hope this was some help to you,all the best hope you sort it.

Fuel comes out when i push the choke in and out

Well is your Fat-Boy Fuel Injected or Carborated. If its Carborated you probley have 1 of 2 problems. 1 Your 2 jets have been tarnished and you should dissasseble your carb by takeing your 2 jets out and your emmosion tube. If there is any sign of green tarnish clean them with chemicals such as seafoam, and lightly clean them with a wire brush. until you can see through them when pionted at a light. Then shoot compressed air thorough them to ensure there is no impuriteys hideing in them. While your carb is apart. check your float level. tilt your carb 15-20 degrees and check your float height. the specks are out there i dont remember them by heart. If its a stock carb look for CV specs

Wich terminal on the ignition coil does the piont & condenser wire go to? what is the length of the spark plug wires (lost one of mine)

Points/condenser connect to the negative side. Ignition sw to the + side. Length of wires is not critical. Just measure how long you need or buy the stock wires from dealer. Any more questions, please reply.
