I have a 2005 WR450 and reading through the manual I saw an topic on 'Ignition Timing Check'. See scanned image from the manual below.
I'm failing to paste an image here. Ok, I've managed to attach it.
My question is this: If this check fails, then is there anywhere to ajust ? I'm thinking of timing on the distributor on a car.
Or if it fails does it mean that the timing chain is incorrect on the cam sprockets ?
If cam timing is correct on TDC, then the ignition timing check should be ok.
If it is wrong, the manual reads: 'incorrect firing range - check rotor and pickup assembly'. There's nothing realy to check on the rotor (magneto) as this has a woodruff key and can only go on one way. As for the pickup assembly - what is it and where is it located ? The bits inside the rotor I guess ? How can one adjust this to get it within 'firing range'.
Just wanting to hear what others have to say about this topic.
