Does a 1983 XL100 have electronic ign?

Recommended Posts

Hey new guy here. My father aquired this bike new. It has 221 miles and has been sitting in a shed since 1983.

I cleaned the carb up, the tank was clean inside! Gas stunk but not varnished. I put a new battery in it (6v).

I'm not getting spark. Does it have points? Elec ign? I don't see a CDI box. Maybe it's inside the case?

Thx, Chris

I'm thinking yes to the points, not sure. I had a bike years ago that if there was moisture in the crank case where the points were located, no spark. Also try the Honda forum, Honda boys will help you out.
