Timing for DR130 kit (Vespa ET3)

Hi!

I bought a DR130 kit and fit it on my ET3 engine, with the original 19 carb. As the documentation delivered with the kit is poor, I let the factory timing.

But it doesn't works correctly. I try with several jets (74, 80 and 85) but it doesn't change my problem. What timing do you use with that kit?

Thank's in advance, Eric

HI I SET MY TIMING TO 16 DEGREES IT RUNS AT ITS BEST AT THAT SETTING,IM USING A 90 MAIN JET ASWELL

Hi

I think the original timing is approx 19 /20°.

What is the method to set  the timing to 16 / 17 °? I know I have to rotate the stator plate, but in what direction, and How?

Thank's in advance

Hi ..

I recommend you 16-17 degrees for your ignition.

Please try to fix the ignition as good as possible because with a good pointed ignition your engine works very well and lives longer.

 

cheers

78/80/82 are the appropriates main jets.

Here is a standard configuration : DR130 /Original exhaust /Carbs 19-19and 78 main jet

I dunno about the timing sorry ...
