Ignition system

Warning: this motorcycle has a high-performance transistorized coil (TSZ) ignition system. Do not touch any live components when the engine is running, or a fatal electric shock may result.
Spark plug electrode gaps.
Every 7500km (5000 miles), and also before installing new spark plugs, use a feeler gauge to check the electrode gaps, and bend it necessary to the specified value 'a' = 0.6 + 0.1 mm (0.024 + 0.004 in).
