1972 F6 Timing spec was created by Clegg

Does anyone know the timing setting for a Kawasaki F6125? I need to install a new set of points. I would imagine the point gap to .012 but would like to set to open at the btdc spec.

There's a service manual in the Tech Library here... look in the "Vintage Non-Enduro" section. It's titled "Kawasaki F7" but covers many models including F6

If you haven't found your answer yet .
Correct ignition timing for F6 is 2.94 mm BTDC .

Thanks everyone. I saw Marks post and found it.
I received the new points today and set to spec. The bike starts instantly and runs perfectly. The originals were pretty spanked.
