Default 79 750 gs help

I just recently purchased a gs 750. Someone has started mods on it. Anyway my question is this. It has new points but they were not hooked to the wires nor do I know what to set them at. Any help would be appreciated

Try a local Mom-&-Pop moto-shop. They probably will specialise in offroad-bikes, but often carry other stuff. THEY can likely get you a manual, if one's available. Might even have a copy in a little merry-go-rack near the counter.

Probably won't cost a dime more than cost-plus-shipping off some internet site, and you'll help them to stay in business for one more day. Might even find a friend who can advise you how best to fix that bike, even if they CAN'T get you a manual.

Will do some net looking. No mom and pop type places around here. Mostly harley and harley riders. Thank you for the info. Appreciate it.

Check here....excellent resource for GS owners. If you can't find the answer there, post a question on their forums. Good luck from a former '79 GS 750 owner.
