Motorcycle Repair / 1966


Hi Bill,

I know you questions on Hondas but your in japanese bikes from the may be helpful. I have a 1966 X6 hustler (two-…) that been trying to get to run for almost a now. I’ve cleaned the and I have spark but it just run (I did have it running fine year).

I noticed some across the points when I it over so I installed new points and I checked the coils and measured 4 across the primary and 8600 across the secondary for both (I assume within range). I set the timing I came across a thing, with the points I read 8 ohms resistance for point.

If I disconnect either one of the condensers I no continuity with the points (as you would expect). The other way I can the continuity with the points is to disconnect any of the leads off the ignition I’m guessing that I a short but I have no idea it is.

Even with this I still get spark with the laying on the side of the head but it not appear to be strong enough for the to catch. Any ideas?


I think you are reading the resistance the condensers. Isolate them and with ohm meter one direction reverse the leads. The battery in the will Charge the condensers in one and discharge them in the opposite

In that you have identical on both sides seems to that all the components are the same.

that the points are just for the coils primary windings and the are to store energy momentarily to point arcing. If you are using an ohm to check timing, you may need to the condensers while establishing the timing point, then put back on again.

I’ll that you are using a fully battery for testing and that the caps are okay. Old Hondas had no in them, but I don’t know Suzukis. Test for spark fresh plugs!

If you have been cranking the over and it hasn’t started, the may be getting fouled again, newer ones.

Older 2 often have failures at the which will draw air in on one and transmission oil on the other side. Get a test and pressure test to see if you can any seal issues. Check the and pistons visually through the ports to be sure that is seized or broken and/or the heads to check the bores.

I know that early had poor reputations for coil quality, but not too sure about old Perhaps, get them tested,

Engines need compression, correctly mixed, strong at the right time to run. Get a of the condition of the engine before the small stuff.

More perhaps, through this
