I had an early John Shirt MAJESTY 320 and that ran backwards in a section... once!!!

Scared me witless.

John reset the timing and it never ran backwards again...

Unless you have a Harley and you accidentally selected reverse... :thumbup:

Best to get the ignition timing checked, it may be too advanced, firing too early and sending the piston down instead of allowing it to rotate beyond TDC.

I seem to recall someone experiencing this condition a long time back. I cannot recall if is was the coil/box or the stator that caused it.

Obviously the coil/ box is the easiest to try first. Depending upon your location, a call to MRS may help firm up this info. :thumbup:

Rules state going backwards is a 5 :thumbup:

Short of learning to ride with your hands behind your back...

suggest you check for a loose flywheel nut and/or a sheared flywheel key,

and while you have the flywheel off check the position of the stator plate and timing mark.

Yea, agree, as in that case may have slipped a widget! :thumbup:
