Powerbike pinking problem

Post  ztis1 on Wed Nov 14, 2018 7:20 pm

I'm having a problem with a junior de-luxe engine knocking badly under light load. Close the throttle and it stops, open it fully and the knocking stops and it goes like a train!

Has anyone experienced anything similar? It's just been rebuilt and all the settings are as per the book.

Thanks,
Ian

Would need to hear it running but if the timing is correct does it have the correct piston fitted?

What fuel are you using ?

Is everything tight?

As far as I am aware the piston is correct and I'm using regular unleaded.

Hi Ken,
I set the timing statically by lining the marks up on the flywheel with the piston at TDC. I suppose the next step is to see where the points actually open!

Regards,
Ian
