I have taken off the little black plug, aligned up the 1st mark with the center mark. I take of the front cover and see that stuff. But I DO NOT see any marks on the block or anything. How would one go about checking the timing on this? I can see where you can loosen the 2 set screws and slightly rotate it but can not see any marks that it should be aligned against?
Mostly want to check as I think my bike was built on a late friday afternoon after vodka meeting.
500 k checkup, I noticed right exhaust head bolt, finger loose and block was stripped. I have heli coiled that and finally got the valves adjusted properly.
Went to install carb jetting kit and noticed left carb 40/125 jets, right carb 40/122 jets. So now both are the same 45/130 jets. But then noticed the Idle/Mixture screw was out 2.5 - 3 full turns on both carbs, adjusted back to proper 1.5 turns. Spark plugs were black with carbon and this explains why. So now waiting for TwinMax to come in the mail to sync carbs. So this is why I figured I would check the timing also but can not see anything to time against.
