Timing Adjustment 101 Questions
I think my timing has been messed with after my Doo install. I had some other internal breakage problems and I think things got "rotated" slightly. But I don't know the first thing about setting the timing. The bike is really hard to start, and backfires occasionally while I'm cranking it. When it finally starts it seems fine, but I can tell something is just "off" I just don't know what. Kind louder and a little more vibratory movement than before.
I'm here at work, (50 miles from home) there are some tools here... is this something I can fix here in the parking lot, or am I going to have to call the wife to come and get me? I suppose I could get it fired up again and drive home, but it'll probably sit all week until I can get to it. But I'm here now, and I noticed there wasn't any good tech info posted in here on adjusting the timing. I'd consult my Clymer, but of course it's at home.
(Funny, I always seem to need tech help when out on the road and never when I'm in my shop. WiFi internet access has saved me more than once thanks to you guys on the fourms!)
