I was wandering the same. I guess maybe there is some hardware to do it, but my idea is if you have digital video camera, you can film it, playback frame by frame, divide 1 sec to 24 ot 25 frames per second (depends on the camera) and calculate the time...

Make sure you point the squirt away from your face, twist the throttle open rapidly while pushing the stopwatch button then when the squirt stops stop the watch. Do it a few times and take the most consistent time. It will most likely require some fine tuning when you ride, so as long as you get it in the general area of .5sec it should be alright.

Also be sure to adjust your spray timing screw so that the spray just misses your slide when opened. Be aware that everytime you adjust the timing screw, it will affect the spray duration. You may have to readjust the screw you installed to achieve your desired spray duration.

The average reaction time is .5 seconds on average (I think)
So if you are holding a stop watch, Looking at the pump at the same time, Turn the excel pump to time. It is virtually impossible to set this at .03 seconds.
I laugh everytime I see that post "I got mine at .05 or .03 or .01
Gimme a break.
So you hold the watch in your left or right hand most likely your non dominant hand. You are using your dominant hand to twist the throttle or turn the pump cam.
At the same time eyeballing the slide.
Yup I can see the exact measurement there of .03 Yup I can. makes perfect sense to me...
Yet another dribbling none informative post by ego

I would agree. But you are getting the decimal point in the wrong place. See motoman's website - BK's quote is:
. Then set the duration of the spray to .3 seconds with the adjustment screw you just installed.
That's about a third of a second. 10 times more than 3 hundredths of a second.

.0 here a .00 there here a dot there a dot nothing more then dot dot Old mcdotted had a bk e i e i o
But still it is virtually impossible to set this with a stop watch or any other means at .3 or .5, If you can I want to see a video, this means you have reflexes like a cyborg
Thanks for pointing out my blunder, glad dont work on the space shuttle
