125 setting the points

Postby luney2nzcycle » Fri Jan 31, 2020 12:00 pm

Hi guys im trying to set the points on a 125, i have the gap set but the marks are not there to set the advance. is the procedure the same for 125 as it is for the 165?
thank you

Yes, all generator models are the same. Best and easiest to use a dial indicator if the motor is still out of the frame. Basically impossible set correctly once the motor is in the frame. I use a dial indicator and a ohm meter

it will run until the battery is dead. Will last a while before needing to be recharged if ya don't run anything but the brake light. Have ya tested the generator armature and field coils ?
