Climber ignition timing

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have goten hold of a 93 Climber that was a non runner when bought.

The seller had changed the electronic ignition box last year before putting it away (he said it ran then). He couldn´t start it this year and then the kickstarter snapped. I now have a spare kickstart fitted and got the bike running (rough with it missing beats at tickover). I cleaned the rotor and pickups etc. with brake cleaner and disconnected the handelbar switch after that it ran better but when moving the wires that come through under the tank it seemed to have a problem. I now have the earth cut off after the connector and have run a wire up to a kill button. She now want´s to start as soon as the kickstart is moved but has a nasty habit of kicking back in a very dangerous way. Can anyone help with setting the ignition timing as they adjust themselves as the bike needs when running and the handbook says to set it at 4000 rpm with a stroboskope (Haven´t got this).

Generally speaking, one may rotate a stator plate in the direction of engine rotation about 3mm if timing is too aggressive.
