I have a R60/2 (1969) and am in the middle of installing the complete system - see
I am uneasy about the electronic advance unit settings. I know that originally the advance mechanism started to advance at 9 degrees BTDC at idling rpm and finished up at 30 degrees at 5,800 rpm (plus or minus 2 degrees).
MZ-B fitting instructions give just two alternative settings for their electronic advance unit.
1/3 on, 2/4 off. This setting will start the increase at 4 degrees BTDC at idling revs and increase to 34 degrees at 2,500 rpm, finishing the increase at 40 degrees at 3,500.
2/3 on, 1/4 off. This setting activates advance at 5 degree BTDC and ends advance at 40 degrees at 3,000 rpm. If the engine gets over 8,500 rpm it will shut down the ignition! (motor would have disintegrated by now anyway)
Neither of these options bear much relation to the original advance parameters – is it efficient to have no advance at all after 3,000 or 3,500 rpm?
Any feedback from members who have successfully installed this MZ-B product would be appreciated. :cry:
I know someone who can help - I will send you a PM.
... Bear in mind... 2) Positioning the regulator underneath the petrol (gas) tank can take some time...
On this /2, fitting the regulator also took a lot of work:
The system is adjusted for full advance at high speed....38 degrees total...and then when it idles back down it will show near the S mark...(that is already 9 degrees)...and that allows it to perform well at idle...and also at full rpm without pinging...
The regulator mounting plate used to be included with the kits.... and no longer are...
I am going to have them made up and will include them with any kits that come from me...I am also including several clamp spacers for the bar clamps... I am setting up a new website where I will show step-by-step how to install the system..
I am now importing the kits in volume and can save at least $100 per kit in shipping.
I also stock a large supply of spare parts.
