And there was I thinking I might have a go at servicing my bike. If it’s that easy to mess it up, think I might get somebody who knows what they’re doing when the time comes.   :)
Looking really good John.

My friend had one years ago.  He had tried inexpertly to service his bike and, on his way to see his girlfriend, called in to see me saying it wasn't going quite as well as it had before.  Upon inspection, it became evident there was no compression in the right cylinder.  We set to work straight away, literally burning our hands taking out the engine.  Quickly, we discovered he had advanced the ignition so much the piston had holed.  After a quick trip to the local Honda dealer, he came back with a new piston and set of rings etc. and within a very short space of time I reassembled the engine, set the timing correctly, and by the time we put the engine back in the frame it was still warm and he was able to resume his journey.

Shouldn't be engine oil in there, there should be an oil seal in the cam carrier bearing.

If it's got tits or wheels, it's hassle, if it's got both, RUN!!!

Yeah, strobing one ended up with your strobe gun getting a light misting of oil droplets

I think static timing is perfectly fine for these, my friend had done something weird, he probably didn't realise there were timing marks, he was not very mechanically minded.

I was talking about generator cover.
That has the timing marks.
Although. I have never noticed any  on the advance mech.

Looking very good.  I think my friend's bike had the front wheel from the 175 which was a TLS, a popular modification at the time.  I think the 175 carbs go on too which are slightly bigger.

Well. It's almost finished.

Running sweetly. So far. Need time to bed the brakes in.

Nice comfy seat.
