    Re: Dial Gauge Recommendation for setting Ignition Timing?

    I always just set them up with screws in the center of the slots then turn the stator plate slightly ccw. They come out running great.

    Re: Dial Gauge Recommendation for setting Ignition Timing?

    I posted the same question over at the X-H2O.com and OCD said I was overthinking the timing issue and to just line up the mark on the stator with the triangular indicator on the 701cc case. I didn't even know that there was one. But looking through my photos, there it is!

    At this point, I have no idea why Yamaha has a special dial tool to use for "tune up." Especially when my oem Yamaha Service Manual doesn't even say how to use it...

    Easy Peasy. Merry Christmas ***s and Gals!
