Iginition Timing Tester - Eliminates the guesswork when timing a points-type ignition. Allows you to concentrate on adjusting the points without having to look at your multi-meter for a reading, just listen for the audible tone to know when your points close. A switch allows for either a light or a tone at the moment of point closure Can also be used as a continuity tester.
Timing kit for inspection and adjustment of ignition timing; gauge face size 1 1/2". Comes with adapter for air-cooled 2 strokes. Although this is an excellent gauge, we do not recommend it for the RD250/350/400/R5/DS7 as there isn't enough clearance to use the gauge with the engine installed in the frame. For the RD250/350/400/R5/DS7 or any bike with minimal clearance between the frame and spark plug, we recommend the Central Tools Dial Gauge which can be found here http://www.economycycle.com/servlet/the-629/Central-Tools-Dial-Gauge/Detail
NGK Spark Plug Caps (Resistor covers). Available in 0, 5K Resistance (Ohms). These caps are just right for the RDs and other 2 stroke vintage Japanese twins. These caps are for the 14mm spark plugs, with a 90 degree angle (elbow) for terminal studs and come with special waterproof covers.
NGK Iridium Spark Plug. The ultimate in the evolution of spark plug technology and performance from the industry leader. The iridium electrode is 25% smaller than a platinum electrode, and it’s just 1/4 the size of a conventional nickel electrode. Ultra-small-diameter center electrode reduces voltage requirement and extends ignition system life. New metal shell plating has enhanced anticorrosion qualities.

***NOTE*** B8ES has been discontinued by NGK, you can substitute BR8ES for the RD400, will work fine. ***NOTE*** B8HS has been discontinued by NGK, you can substitute BR8HS for the RD400, will work fine. The NGK Standard Spark Plug is manufactured to enhance the performance of the vehicle. It is constructed from durable material that is corrosion and abrasion resistant. The Spark plug insulators are made of 99 percent pure alumina silicate, allowing for longer insulator noses for reduced fouling. This Spark plug features a triple gasket sealing process that eliminates fuel leakage. It also includes a solid copper core that provides superior heat dissipation and conductivity. This Spark plug has resistor that is produced with a glass and carbon mixture, which is fired to ensure superior performance and durability. It has corrugated ribs that prevent flash over and cold rolled threads to inhibit damage to the cylinder head. Choose spark plug and click add to cart.

- Manufactured by Vape, imported from Europe by Economy Cycle – an authorized US distributor.
- You will need a basic understanding of motorcycle electrical systems and basic mechanical knowledge to install the system, or you can have your own mechanic or local bike shop perform the installation. Economy Cycle can also install this system on your bike or motor.
- The system typically takes 3-4 hours to install.
- Note: requires puller tool - available here on the website in the Vape replacement parts category.

- Kit includes a relay to allow you to use your stock ignition switch
- Some notes on keyway cutting and woodruff keys: Keeways and woodruff keys are not intended to keep the rotor drum from slipping and absorbing a shear load. They are designed to index timing, and once a keeway is cut and woodruff key installed, your timing is permanently fixed and cannot be changed, we don't recommend this modification for these reasons.
- Requires no battery or lead acid / MF type battery only.
