Howdy Y'all,

So I just got done rebuilding my engine. I had to replace the camshaft, bearing, and contact points, and finally reassembled everything on the bike. Only now I realize I'm getting spark, I'm getting fuel, but I've messed up the timing. Can someone tell me what I need to do to set the timing? Thank you this has been a long process and I'm dying to get back out on the rode again.

I don't know how much different the CL is, but I have a CB 360, and YouTube has an awesome video by Common Motor Collective on ignition timing.

Points should JUST break (open) at the F line alignment with the index line (Static or idle timing)...... Phone if you need to.......

I can't imagine there would be you tube videos out there with inaccurate information, but, I suppose it is possible.
My thoughts exactly ….
