Cb550f timing no test light
« on: September 29, 2018, 02:30:32 pm »
Doing a timing check, cam chain, valves before syncing my carbs and my test light will not come on! I tested it right up against battery, its new and works. I can tell points are opening right at the F mark by pulling  a piece of cigarette paper from between them, but is there any reason my test light wont go on when connected??

I just dont wanna have to dig in to wiring just yet...

 the bike still starts and runs but is rough do to only bench synch

Silly question...when testing, do you have the key turned to on and kill switch in run position?

Oh man that is really humbling! Thanks! I definitely had the key on but the  killswitch not set to run... for some reason I totally overlooked that.. thanks again!
