Ignition Timing
« on: September 01, 2007, 12:58:00 AM »
Anyone out there have some advice for setting the timing on my Bullet 500 ES. I have the nifty TDC tool from Classic Motorworks.
Any words of wisdom will be gratefully received.

It's not difficult if you follow the manual.
The only hint that I have is that you advance one line on the tool and that is the correct amount of BTC for the Classic.
