you need a w9 needle

Re: why do points suck.....

Stock points should be fine as long as you don't intend to run much over say 10,000 rpm or so. You might be able to install a stronger or double points spring and raise that slightly if your running crazy rpms.

Re: why do points suck.....

when my kit did this and it drove me nuts for a year ( backfiring ) it turned out i had an old shitty plug wire from a moby on my bike and it was causeing my points to arc at high rpm. Drove me nuts figuring out what it was, cuase , WOT speed kinda makes checking shit out tough.

Read what mark ryan wrote, that makes tons of sense.

Jae lee - I thought most 19mm dels CAME with w9's ?

My 2 did.

Re: why do points suck.....

And yeah, despite all the heat i took for it, gunning a cdi on it just to fix it will not help you learn the bike in the end.

especially if its a carb issue...that bit elliot wrote is really good info..

Re: why points rock my world

I can set them with a dial indicator and a timing box

Re: why points rock my world

Go to your nearest NAPA and see if they have any old stock W8AC Bosch plugs...even if it doesn't do much for your problem they're better than NGK's Imo.
