Setting the ignition timing - 860
The figure shows the dial gauge indicating
380 advance. To obtain this setting, rotate
the engine backwards from the Top Dead
Centre position for a quarter turn, then
forwards gradually until the wheel indica-
tor shows a reading of exactly 38°.
Ignition timing,. stator plate orientation
Remove the dial gauge, taking care not to
turn the engine. Fitthe pin # 88713.0119 in
the appropriate hole on the generator rotor
and turn the stator plate until the pin slips
into the corresponding stator plate hole.
Ignition timing, securing the stator plate
Keeping the pin inserted as in the previous
figure, and without turning the engine,
gently insert a screwdriver in the three
holes and tighten the screws securing the
plate to the crankcase. The engine should
then be set at exactly 380 ignition advance.
For accuracy use the dial gauge again to
check. When the engine is re-mounted in
the motorcycle it is advisable to check the
ignition advance with a stroboscope.
