350 Talk / Re: Engine timing
« Last post by coxy on July 06, 2018, 06:07:18 PM »
its usually pretty simple
one of my bikes for some reason has had the hole for the timing bolt welded and tapped to a smaller thread making the timing tool useless  ,I just knocked the head off and set the points to that by eye ,the bike actually runs really well now
with a tdc tool I think its 3 degrees before tdc  .in the book it says how to do a continuity test as well
there is another download for tunning for speed its worth a look
Welcome to the Bridgestone world again. Have you tried Richard the site owner. He may well have a kicker lever. Give him a try.
Good luck, Mike

Looks correct Moonpup especially if it has a twin filament festoon bulb. The Homer 50 Taillight had 2 individual festoon bulbs and is smaller than the 50/60/90/100 Sport lens. Looks like it was used on the Japan models. About $14 AUD (80¥ to 1.00 AUD) Looks like they are scamming the postage. $62 USD to USA.
Cheers Ray

          Nice job on the panniers, they look period. I know of the type you've fitted but am not personally familiar with them.

     Think I would be more concerned with the rear end vibration that our bikes seem to suffer, IE, would use plenty of rubber washers on the mounts (you may have done). The rear end latch type do benefit from a being under tension when closed. Do the lids have a rubber seal inside to provide this.  A simple thin bungee type tether certainly wouldn't do any harm if you are concerned about losing the lids.                                                       Brian.

I made a new addition to my 350.   I bought a pair of the 60's saddlebags along with brackets for a 50,60,90 (only ones available at the time) from E-Bay.  I've got them mounted as shown using a homemade mounting bracket.  Does anyone have experience with these?  The lid mounting and latching seem a little sketchy, but maybe that's just me being paranoid. I've lost a couple side covers off my 350 due to my own carelessness, and many people have lost the toolbox covers of the 175/200 high pipe bikes.  I'm just curious if I should put some kind of tether or other mechanism on them to make certain they don't fall off.
