Running problems with GILL electronic ignition
« on: April 27, 2017, 10:25:10 AM »
Hi, I have a running issue with the Hesketh using a GILL ignition module and pick up.
The bike was running perfect for about 40 miles and then just lost power, almost like running out of fuel but the tank was full.
I had the bike recovered and checked it over,there is a good supply of fuel to the carbs which were checked and cleaned about 100 miles ago as the bike had been standing for a while. There was no sign of dirt or water in the carbs. There is a spark, but on checking the timing it is very retarded at low RPM and does not advance at all
I've contacted GILL but they are not very helpfull
I've replaced all the other electrical bits, plugs, caps, coils
Has anyone else experienced this and if so what was the cure
Regards Chris
