Default 01 cr250 Ignition Timing

     

I just recently finished my 01 cr250 rebuild and I installed the new stator. I put the top bolt in closer to the left/middle hole in the slot. (there is a oblong slot for stator to slide in for adjustment) ( i know this is a bad explanation ) Is there a general rule of thumb for someone that dont have timing light/ correct tools? Should I put the bolt smack dab in the middle of the stator? More right to Advance? more left to Retard? Is there enough adjustment to fry my system / burn hole in piston? Can I push it all the way ClockWise to advance it or should I really time it per the manual? I know jetting and other variables to consider but...

Thanks in Advance..
Ken

Should be some alignment marks. Not sure about your specific motor. If there are no marks, you will have to do as suggested and set the timing per the manual.

Just know that if the timing is too far advanced, you will probably hear pinging in the motor and could blow it apart. Bolts in the middle of the slots is where I would start if you have no access to timing tools.

There should be two alignment marks, one on the cases, one on the stator backing plate...
Line those dead on, then see what your manual has to say.

What you need if there are no marks is a manual, dial indicator and degree wheel.
The manual is still the best however.

I have the manual and the stator / flywheel is brand new oem. I need to bring bike to 3000 rpm and time it but.. as stated before no light or tachometer. Looks like i'll have to get one!

I know here in Texas the auto supply stores will rent tools. O'rielly Auto or Auto Zone will, not sure what's available up in your neck of the woods. Might be cheaper than buying one.
