Ignition timing is the timing of the spark plug pulses (measured in degrees from the top dead center positon of the piston), an ignition timer/advancer/whatever allows you to modify the timing to optimize performance.
mines not hard to use and it helped a bunch. mine you remove the left engine cover. unscrew thepick up plate and unbolt the timing plate and bolt the new in and new gasket and reinstall the cover. 20 inutes on a good day. sets the ignition 3 degrees or so forward and gave it alot better throttle response. ignition timing is the amount of degrees before top dead center that the plug fires. generally 10-20 degrees before tdc. this allows the fuel to start burning before the actual power stroke. if it ignties at top dead center the fuel wil not have enough time to igntie and the power will not be its full potential. alot of bike and car companies set the spark way to early so its burns complete and has less unburnt fuel out in the atmosphere and increase emissions. the igntion advancers allow you to find the sweet spot from the manufactures spot and exactly tdc. find the sweet spot and you get a much more powerfull burn becuase the pressrure is higher at the point of igntion. but dont add one in cali or green states because it does screw with emissions. and im done.
holeshot.com then click on bandit on theleft and go to ignintion 5' advancer
well technically it still has a regular ignition trigger like any other bike, so you COULD do a regular style advancer. but honestly, unless you plan on running N20 or turbo/supercharging it and need to retard the timing, i wouldn't mess with it. i have a pc3r for my 954 and i've tried playing with the ignition timing a bit (on a dyno) and it made no improvement, and actualy made the bike run a bit hotter, especially when playing with oxygenated fuels (nutec). though i think with the last runs (on nutec) it was more the fuel making it hotter than the ignition timing.
Hey Skr00ze should I get an advancer to throw on the 1100? Im also wondering about doing the wire jumper mode that I was told about. Something about cutting a wire. I cant get on oldschoolsuzuki.info for some reason, the page says cant be found or some shit....stupid computer
