Re: Timing B50 with X4 Megacycle and STK010 Ignition

Does your 580 have a larger combustion chamber? , if so it probably could use a little more spark lead.

Re: Megacycle 541x11

In my NOT widely shared opinion the oem MX cam is best used in an observed trials engine as it gives an instant low rpm blast of power when you don't need high rpm hp anyway. I think there are some modified versions that give a bit more power as the revs come up but I have no experience with them. T...

Re: Megacycle 541x11

It's a MX cam that was only listed for a few years. It uses the std flat tappets.
My 250 cam, the 541X3 was also only listed for a few years as well.
My 500 cam, the 541X4 has become one of their largest selling BSA cams though.
X3 & X4 both use the C15 type tappets.

he must flip houses. On the start page it says "my new address" or like that. so that's where I sent it. It was just a CCM factory page explaining why they blocked the two drain holes under the oil pump and drilled into the crank area to drain the timing area.

Re: Final crankcase disassembly steps

I think you should replace the unit. Those tabs are prone to breaking without having been hammered flat. Just make sure you don't get one for a Triumph twin as while they look almost the same, they rotate in the opposite direction so the advance unit is backwards as well.
