There are many good reasons to tune a [[Jawa]]. The 207 frame is extremely light weight and solid; it's also very compact and can be set up to have a very low profile. The 207 engine is simple in operation and one of the easier units to work on. Despite its lack of bolt-on performance, the 207 engine provides a great platform for experimentation and is thus an excellent learning tool. The Jawa 207 and 210 engines both employ a simple [[CDI]] with an internal rotor and external stator setup which greatly cuts down on the engine's rotating mass. The best part of all is that the engines are available readily and at a very low cost, so one can completely screw up and be back on the road for very little money. The following is a list of what has been done to improve performance on these bikes. These things may or may not work for your setup and have not yet been proven on a large scale yet. Jawa tuning is in its infancy, and these procedures come with no guarantees with regards to performance, reliability, or safety. '''TUNE AT YOUR OWN RISK!''' If you have anything to add PLEASE DO SO!

Despite its lack of bolt-on performance, the 207 engine provides a great platform for experimentation and is thus an excellent learning tool. The Jawa 207 and 210 engines both employ a simple contactless electronic ignition system (the forerunner to the modern [[CDI]]) with an internal rotor and external stator setup which greatly cuts down on the engine's rotating mass.
