A couple of questions:Has anyone used the 6% advance timing wheel and torque loop.
Will it improve milage.
Will it harm engine.
Life has many choices
Eternity has two
If you are thinking of installing an aftermarket trigger wheel as a 'repair' you will most likely not be happy with the results.
I just read all the inputs and noticed this is a 3 year old thread.
FYI, the goldwing, (all years) have 2* built into to ECM. That is why there are two different advance wheels available. I would go with the 4 degree wheel for your scoot. 2*+ a 6* wheel & you will have pinging problems what ever gasoline you put in the tank, IMHO....-Richprospector wrote:
A couple of questions:
1. What bike are you talking about (GL1000, GL1100, GL1200 or GL1500)?
2. Are you really talking about the 6 degree pulse rotor or the 4 degree pulse rotor?
The reason I ask is folks usually installed the 4 degree pulse rotor on the older year GL1500's (particularly 1988 and 1989) and the 6 degree pulse rotor on the Valkyrie's
The 1988 and 1989 Gold Wing's had an "off idle" hesitation from the factory. Installing a 4 degree pulse rotor increased the timing and helped to mask the problem.
This problem was correct in the 1990 year bikes, Honda made some carburetor and timing changes that resolved the problems.
We installed a 4 degree pulse rotor on my friends 1989 Gold Wing Trike. It did improve the "off idle" hesitation somewhat and made the engine a little more responsive at lower RPM's but there was no noticeable difference in fuel mileage. This change did not require use of a higher octane fuel.
However, your results may differ.
