Yes it does. I have been there with the GL, just before Barber I get new points, in a hurry to time so I leave plugs in, set Timing, new points + correct timing equals way better running bike, little did I know my high compression engine allowed me to overtorque the alternator bolt and shear threads off. I went to do belts about a week before the 2000 mile ride and the bolt was dangling out of the engine. That meant pulling the motor to fix! It sucked, and I had to cage it to barber, but live and learn. I hope you can fix this without having to pull the motor.
