    I just built a AF 500 Honda 1985 engine CDI was bad, I bought a new OEM stator, rotor, and CDI.
    Box for a 2001 cr 500 engine was just rebuild, the stator has fixed mounting holes, when I try to start the engine all I get is a loud pop out of the pipe, and a lot of resistance from the kick starter any recommendations where to adjust the timing to

    turn the timing plate counter-clockwise to retard the timing.
    of course if it doesn't have slotted holes for the screws then you have to make them.

    Just a thought...I have a 500AF as well, they do have a ton of compression and mine pops as well as every other 500 i've been around. That to me is normal and the heavy kick is normal as well. I know that doesn't help with your situation if it is the timing but what you described sounds normal to me.
