Ah I don't think they were that bad at all. It's basically a CB360 with a bit of cost cutting on the chassis parts, and the electric start removed. You don't see many of the CJs because they only made them for a year.

Don't think I've ever seen one - just the CJ250T, and only ever in yellow. They weren't the coolest bike back in the day with things like the RD250/400 strokers, and CB400 Fours around, and definitely not the quickest - but when you get to the vintage bike stage, who cares :) Things like the front drum brake actually look better on an old bike - imho

Doesn't matter it's a start for me .learning already but setting the new points is an absolute bitch might consider the electronic timing .time will tell

This should have nothing to do with the points. Unless the cam lobe is worn, the points should open (and close) enough.
Have you checked the dwell angle?

The points dont tend to close at all even moving backing plate beyond the notch .am still learning this stuff .dwell angle looks too complicated

If they're not closing at all (easy to check with a bulb), then either the points themself aren't right or they're not fitted correctly. Is there a locating pin on the back of them? If the locating pin is located in its hole, and the adjustment is backed right off, and the points still aren't closing (assuming they're not stuck or something), then the points aren't right.

I had another look at the dwell earlier and I turned the cam 180 degrees and it was better when I lined up the LF and F but I have bigger problems now shaft sheared off the kickstart but thanks for the info

A lot of the Honda's needed longer slots filed in the plate if using non OEM points

Only seeing this now - was away for a while, apologies

No I stuck with the points. The 450 revs to 10k happily on the std OEM points so I thought fkit, it runs well enough/one less expense why bother. Dunno if its exactly the same setup on the 360 - but there is a recommended sequence for the steps on both sides to give you the best chance of setting it accurately.

Saw you had the problem with the kickstart on the other thread :doh: Jz, that's a bummer.

Tell us this whereabouts are you - Drop me a PM sure and if you're anywhere close I'll see if I can take a scoot over and see if I can hep you figure out what's going on if it would help.
