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.

Strobe timing Triumph Bonniville T120R
Strobe timing my Bonnie the most important thing is to check whether the
mark on your alternator corresponds to TDC (most likely) or for 38deg BTDC.
some later cases with a small inspection plug ieT140 type are set for 38deg
but it is always worth checking with the crankshaft notches accessed
through the plug at base of barrels.
Boyer recommend around 5000 rpm to set timing. If you do not have a tacho
continue reving until the mark stops moving (advancing) this is the max
revs you will need to set timing.
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.
How To Tune Up A Royal Enfield Bullet Motorcycle - Ignition Timing And Point Gap
Here's how to tune up a Royal Enfield Bullet Motorcycle. I go over the
static method of setting the point gap and ignition timing. This is the
tune-up procedure recommended by the Royal Enfield company. To set the
point gap, remove the points cover and turn the engine around until the
points are open their widest. Then set them to .40 mm, making sure the
feeler gauge goes in and out with a little bit of resistance. Setting the
timing is outlined in the video. I used the official Royal Enfield tool to
measure the height of the piston, and then set it so that the points close
at .8 mm before top dead center. This is a good time to examine your spark
plug and clean or replace it. Once you've done this tune up to your Royal
Enfield Bullet, take your Royal Enfield Bullet Motorcycle for a ride to
check for any loss of power or pinging from the engine. The engine will
ping if the ignition is too advanced, so if you hear a ping, retard it.
