Cb750 ignition

Postby themaddrebel » Thu May 10, 2018 11:52 am

Is it possible that since I'm chopping my 650, I could use basic wire harness and use points from a cb550?

I'm confused by the text of your question compared to the thread title. Are you asking if CB550 or CB750 parts will work? If CB550, I highly doubt it. The CB550 used a point system (like you mention in the text) but it is not remotely similar to the pulse generator system used by the CB650 (and the CB750 as mentioned in the title). A CB750 (1979 to 1982) pulse generator looks very similar to the on the CB650, but I'm not sure if the sizes are the same.

Sorry, I meant 650 in title. I figured if I swapped the cb550 points plate with the pulse plate in the 650, I could have basic ignition

I'm not sure what it would take to do such a thing.
