No. Especially on moped tires. They're basically the same as a BMX bike which, for me require no tire irons. One thing I took out of that video that I'll try next time is to throw a tire down to use as a "work bench." Just takes some elbow grease, definitely you do not need ANY fucking special stand.

You have a bike that will not run or not running properly .

After checking fuel supply , spark , and compression , you decide to check the points and timing .

If your timing will not set properly after setting the points to the correct open measurement ( + - .016) and you can get the bike to run with the points almost closed (.010 or less) and the stator plate set to fully retard the timing , the flywheel cam rub block on the points is worn out and they need to be replaced .

I have had several bikes with this condition lately . Easy fix once i found it .

I will just reset the points at fully closed if that feeler is shot just to run it till parts get there.
