Question about 2000 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom
The ignition timing on your bike is adjusted by removing the timing plug on the right side of the engine and shining a "timing light" into the hole. You should see the 'front cylinder advanced timing mark" when you have the light's trigger wire connected to the front cylinder and the engine at about 2000-2500 RPM. If it's not there, you move the timing sensor behind the timer cover on the right engine cover either clockwise or counterclockwise to advance or retardt he timing. Once set, the timing does not change like it used to when contact points was the ignition system trigger. Today's electronic ignition systems don't change once set.
