Should have mentioned that the timing mark on the rotor and the timing mark on the fly wheel are aligned. The paint on the Boyer magnet and the hole in the stator plate I am not so sure about.

Re: Pazon Ignition Module Location

I have a digital (smart fire) Pazon that's back on the shelf for the 2:nd time. I don't know what is the matter with it. B50 kicked back a lot when statically timed as per instruction. Retarded it a bit and it got better. The strobe light showed it was right on spot, at any rev, even idle! I couldn'...

Re: Future project

Hi, I am not a very experienced B50 owner, but what I have learned from my B50 would make me doubt the usefulness of a B50 in the desert. The B50 is a rather brittle bike. To the best of my knowledge, it started as the Triumph Terrier, a 150cc bike. I think the clutch was designed for that size of e...

Welcome to the forum! I haven't looked in to it at all myself, but according to http://www.britishcycle.com/Manuals/hayward_belt_drive_hints_and_tips.htm it should be possible. C15 to B50 belt drives – Not usually much fuss to fit. One may need to slightly space out rotor and stator. Christer

It sounds like my B50. I could only start it by rolling downhill and letting the clutch out. In the end it was my kick start technique that failed.

I tried to be very careful with static timing, but ended up with similar results.

I am not sure, but I decided that I couldn't trust the timing light. It behaved...

Yup! That was it! Having cleaned the carb, and restrained my self from using the throttle, it starts just fine. Maybe not first or second, but still, it starts.

Thanks, That's a very interesting thought. I have tried to start it on a small throttle opening, as I did on other machines. In fact when bump starting it seems to require more throttle than most.
