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.

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 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. See my Royal Enfield Bullet 500 at http://www.hoohoohoblin.com/

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)
