Timing issue?

Discussion in 'The Garage' started by Robert Dell Aquila, Nov 30, 2018.

  1. Hi yall, hope all is well. So basically I had an issue with my 78 xs650 rephased a few months ago where my bike would start up fine initially, would ride it around and then it would stall and wouldnt start back up again. I posted a thread with a picture of my points ignition and people commented saying it was most likely my timing. I changed my points to a Pamco 277, followed Hughes guide and wired my coils accordingly. Tried setting my timing with the Pamco installed and the same thing happens. The bike started up fine, turned it off a couple times then it wouldnt start up again. Its probably more than just a timing issue. Any insight would be very much appreciated. Thanks

  3. Possibly. But what would cause it to over heat?
