Default Dynamic timing the 2000i?

On the install instructions for the Dynatek 2000i it says to ground the VOES in order to do the dynamic timing proceedure.
How can I geound the VOES to bring it to full advance?
I am running the Mikuni HSR42 and I have little/ no room. I imagine i will have to run the bike without the tank to be avle to get to the voes and or other stuff.
So I won't be able to run it long...

you could try pushing a pin into the connector and then use jumper to frame.
on occasions when i had to run without a tank, i used a large syringe without the plunger and stuck the end into the hose. a feeding tube one works and if you get the tapered end, it will wedge nicely in the hose without clamp.

Dynamic timing is done while the bike is on the kickstand --- you're looking into the timing hole while shining a timing light in there to flash in sync with the spark firing... You can set this up and put everything back in place...

The instructions intend for you to 'ground the VOES' wire that goes to the ignition module - meaning, disconnect the VOES and put a jumper across the two connections in the socket that goes toward the ignition module - One contact is the signal line, the other is the ground line...

Here's the Sportsterpedia section on the VOES:
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...lectric_switch

The VOES, when at idle, should already be closing that switch to ground - but by doing this, you are definitely telling the ignition module to operate with the ADVANCE curve and you should be looking for the 'Double Dots' to indicate the timing is operating at the 20° BTDC mark at approximately 1000rpms (or as directed by the instructions)...

Well isn't this a pain. My bassani road rage 2 into 1 totally blocks the timing hole. The thought of having to R%
&R the exhaust to put factory header and pipe back only to R&R it again just burns my butt after all the issues this spring .
I thought of a mirror but it is a tight spot.

should have room for a short allen, and you can see the plug. just wrap some tin foil around the exh so the oil will not burn to it.
truth is, you probably will not need to reset timing. the timing led is triggered by the timing cup window and is mechanically fixed. never had to adjust timing on mine, even the one i put on in 1975.
now if you plan on altering the adv and need a dial back timing light, then things will change. remember, hd says anything in the hole is acceptable but i am like you, want it to be spot on.
