Default Dyna s sportster timing

Hi,

883 1999

Can someone share a picture of their dyna s mounted ? This way I know if my dyna is in somewhat the correct position. Currently I am on my holiday address with my bike and I dont have a timing light nor tools to check the tdc location.

It runs very good and starts perfect but I would like to check it to be sure at least I dont burn holes in my pistons in this hot environment.

Next time I go here I will bring the necessary tools with me.

Thanks.

How did you set the timing when you installed it? BE SPECIFIC!

It still runs.. Have driven 1000 miles with it now, should be a safe timing I guess ?

1999 Model - Did you revert to using a mechanical advance? The Dyna S is just a pickup coil (essentially, electronic points)...

Or do you have some other model Dyna ignition?

Here's the Sportsterpedia REF section on the Dyna-S:
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...ngctl01#dyna_s

There are install instructions there along with Static Timing info...

Is it the Dual-Fire version (DS6-1) or the Single-Fire version (DS6-2)?
