A most productive day today. Finally got my CBX250 project bike to a point where I could have a little go it. I’m very pleased with how it goes, seems pretty peppy for a 250. Thanks Ange for all your help with the wiring.
After much messing about changing points and condenser, I got fed up with the ancient set up and decided to bite the bullet and buy the expensive solid state ignition system from eBay. It’s a good improvement, starts easy now. I’m going to change the coil as well, just to be certain everything is perfect. Fortunately the coil is relatively inexpensive.
