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.





How to sync carbs on a motorcycle
This video demonstrates the procedure to synchronize a carburetor on a 1977 Honda CB550. It is really important, especially for bikes of this vintage, to synchronize your carbs at the beginning of every riding season or after any repair or adjustment to the carbs. This bike still needs some work to be road ready, but it has a lot of potential and is super cafe racer cool. If you are attempting to do this procedure yourself and have any questions before you start, feel free to let me know. That's the good thing about Youtube, FREE INFORMATION FOR ALL!!!!! EDIT: Here are a few edits I would like to make to this video after watching it a couple of times. 1. Make sure your carb synch comes after everything else in a normal tune up. This includes Valve clearances, cam chain tension, spark plug gap/cleaning, point gap, ignition timing, air filter cleaning/replacement, and all the air bleed screw settings should be checked. 2. Engine speed for a carb synch should be around 1500rpms if possible. 3. The adjuster screw lockdown nuts should always be re-tightened after adjustment (I forgot to show it)

setting ignition timing on a honda cb350 part 2
setting the ignition timing on a 1972 honda cb350 note that what I'm saying at the end of this is wrong :) my left side is firing early and right is firing late - moving the points base plate to make left fire on time will make right fire even later and vice versa - what you need to do (and what I do in a subsequent video) is try to find a happy medium with the points baseplate where each side is either dead on, or off by a similar amount - then you can fudge the point gap slightly to get the timing exact for both sides keep watching - it will make sense
