Why You Need This: Ignition timing plays a vital role in ensuring your motorcycle's engine reliability and performance. If your Honda CB750 / CB550 or CB500K ignition points have been in service for decades, it may be time to replace them. Usual mechanical wear and tear can degrade their functionality, leading to your bike stuttering, missing, difficult to start or dead in the water. Our replacement Ignition Contact Points Set for the Honda CB750 / CB550 / CB500K is the perfect solution to keep your engine in proper tune.
Installation Tip: Proper installation and adjustment of the ignition contact points set is crucial. See our article on how to set ignition timing. It's advised to also check the mechanical advance mechanism for optimal operation. We've found that using a test light to set static timing is typically close, but final adjustment and testing using a strobe timing light will yield the best results. Apply a small amount of white grease on the felt wick to keep the followers lubricated. Ignition timing should be adjusted every 1,500 miles, expect to get about 6,000 miles out of a set of points before they need to be replaced.
