She purrs like a machine gun

I figured out the reason the CB125 wouldn't start. After many attempts the best I could do was to get it to backfire through the carb. This told me that it had to be a problem with the ignition timing but no matter what I did I couldn't get it to time correctly.

That is until I decided to take a closer look at the points advancer.

Can you spot the difference?
Looks like the advance shaft was on backwards, so off it came.
Much better.
MUCH better.
