You might have to turn the sound up a bit to hear the cranking. Please let me know what you think. Thanks.
Thanks for the replies. Sorry in advance if I sound a bit frustrated as this has been a thorn in my side for a while now. It seems there is some consensus that the timing is out.
Now I can almost set a ’59 Bonneville’s timing blindfolded because the process is set out step by step and I have done it a few hundred times.I have searched and found a lot of stuff with a gazillion pages a million other issues and models and part etc. I just get totally lost in all the jargon, I am the world’s worst reader – I need pictures. I have not done this on a BMW or VW before. What I am looking for a simple step by step instruction to check the timing on my bike a 1982 R100RS. Hope someone can help with some photos and a step by step instruction. Thanks
