XS1100 Ignition Timing

Setting the base ignition timing on an XS1100. The timing light is intermittent. The problem turned out to be nothing more serious than an loose connector at the ignition module pickup coil plug that was easy to fix.

Setting the Timing on a Yamaha 1978 XS-400E
This is how I set the timing for the points on my '78 Yamaha. I did not show how to set the gap. You should also set the gap when you do this. If I get enough feedback I will make a video for that as well.





XS1100 Carburetor Install
How to install the carburetors on an XS1100. The carburetors are the later 1980s design being installed on an earlier model 1978 Standard. There are no carburetor float bowl vent hoses on the '80s carbs so the fittings for the vent hoses on the '78 airbox will have to be capped.

Motorcycle Electronic Ignition Troubleshooting Honda XL500R
My Honda XL500R motorcycle would stall after going 7 miles. If I let it cool off for half an hour or more, it would start and run fine for another 7 miles. I replaced the CDI box and it was better for about a year, but then it happened again. This time I replaced all of the electronic ignition components with used parts from eBay. Honda doesn't make new CDI boxes or coils for the XL500R motorcycle anymore. It runs great now, but I need to go on a long ride to be sure.
