The new supply of ignition contact points for the Honda CB350 / CB360 / CL350 Scrambler / CL360 Scrambler / SL350 & CJ360 must be modified for proper ignition timing adjustment. The old stock of Japanese-made ignition points for these motorcycles have pretty much dried up, and we have to turn to points made in China to keep our bikes alive. As is, the new points won't cut it, however with a few simple DIY mods they get the job done and your bike back in tune. Follow along and we will show you the modifications necessary to make these ignition points work right.
