Puch HPI CDI users: timing question

Just got my hands on a auto advancing HPI CDI for my ZA50 and I can't seem to find the right timing. So.. my question is:

How many mm BTDC did you set your CDI at to run right?

If you have a e50 with one please post as well as they are very similar.

Sub question:

Did anyone find a solution for lighting besides a battery?

Re: Puch HPI CDI users: timing question

Is this in the right forum? Is everyone at BroBQ? Whats the deal??? I need answers!

Re: Puch HPI CDI users: timing question

it's proboly because it's spinning the opposite direction as the E50

Re: Puch HPI CDI users: timing question

haha nice one hippy.

Re: Puch HPI CDI users: timing question

Normally you line up the marks on the rotor and baseplate at TDC, but that won't work I guess.

I've heard from people that a HPI on a ZA50 isn't a good idea tho. They say these engines don't run well without a flywheel pushing em.

if you dont want it i may want it

lol

Re: Puch HPI CDI users: timing question

I know the rotor spins the other way, and I know you line up the timing marks, but for the universal HPI you match the marks up at between 2 and 4mm BTDC according to the instructions. I want to know what has worked for others. And the bike does run.

If you could supply record of this information that would be helpful.

Re: Puch HPI CDI users: timing question

Well, that information is on www.puchforum.net. It is in Dutch however. And it's just hearsay, so I don't know how credible it is. You should try it for yourself.
