Parts: Ignition Rebuild Kit for Honda CB350, CL350, SL350 / CB360, CL360, CJ360 motorcycles.
Why You Need This: Having trouble getting your ignition timing correct on your Honda CB350, CL350 Scrambler, SL350, CB360, CL360 Scrambler, or CJ360? The ignition system on these motorcycles is hyper sensitive and will only time correctly if the parts are in top shape. The points situation as of May 2018:
Over the last few years it is has become increasingly tough to find ignition points for the Honda CB350, CL350, SL350 as well as the CB360, CL360 and CJ360 family of motorcycles. After 40+ years the supply of NOS (new old stock) Japanese made points has finally dried up and the last Japanese has manufacturer ceased production. The ace team here at Common Motor is always determined to help you keep your vintage Honda motorcycle on the road. We have been able to source new replacement ignition points for these bikes; however, these modern points (made in China) do not have the precise manufacturing tolerances of the old points from Japan. They will work, but first they must be modified to properly function in your engine. The good news is that we have included the parts, tools and instructions needed to modify these ignition points so that function smoothly, and properly adjust so your bike runs like it rolled out the the dealership when new. Fret not as the modifications are minor and easy to make, but are necessary for things to work smoothly. Please watch our VIDEO above and read our tech article about the points modification process.
The ignition rebuild kit contains: left and right contact points, condensers, shim washers and a round file. To make things even easier our Allen head mounting screw set is included; converting to Allen head bolts makes setting the points much easier versus the destroyed screws that are in there. Finish up the job right with some fresh spark plugs and you are ready to ride!
Installation Tip: Inspect the advance mechanism under the point plate to see that it is working smoothly. Exact point ignition timing is essential to a smooth running engine, the gap of the points is subjective. We set the points with a test light not to be confused with an automotive strobe style timing light. A small smear of white lithium grease on the points cam will extend the life of the rubbing blocks. Ignition timing should be adjusted every 1,500 miles, expect to get about 4,500 to 6,000 miles out of a set of points before they need to be replaced. Be sure to watch our video on how to set ignition timing on the Honda CB350, CL350 Scrambler, CB360, CL360 Scrambler, SL350 and CJ360.
