This thread looks dead, so I hope no one feels I'm hijacking it, but it's an important one, since there's a lot of interesting suggestions but few specifics on the web on using the Tecate 3 250 flywheel and either stock stator or one from Ricky Stator http://www.rickystator.com/
I am going through the pain of figuring this out myself and while I've yet to find a reliable tutorial on the exact set up, it seems from what I've read one can either cut a new rotor keyway (looking into the open side of the rotor with the stock keyway positioned up at 12 o'clock) at roughly 1:30, or drill out new bolt guides on the stator so it can rotate further ccw - presumably to that 1:30 mark. So I can either cut a new keyway into the tecate 3 flywheel or drill out the stator plate. This is just a rough up of what I'm thinking, but I would like to hear from anyone with knowledge about converting a Tecate to KDX.
As I understand it the early KDX's like my 1987 (which I've got to rebuild now) must spark at 6* and then again at 21* when the engine hits 6000 RPM.
I have not found a good written tutorial let alone any photos of how the setup should look e.g where the new timing marks should be, etc.
Anyone else working on this type of fix for their '86 - '88 KDX 200?
