A couple of closer shots of the various marks on my bike.
















Anybody have any idea which marks I should be using to set the timing correctly?

Agreed- Fun following this $ build..

Great attention to details brother!

I have never timed my IT or YZ... but thinking the middle mark would be factory set... outside lines would be for Advancing or Retard the timing?

Need the experts to weigh in here so don't take my advice!

I took Greg's advice and lined up the center hash mark on the stator with the single vertical hash mark on the case. We'll see.


This afternoon I finished up the ignition/lighting harness repairs.

Here, the grommet is trimmed back as far as possible to fit under the cover. A little thin on the sealing surface there, but I'll keep an eye on things once I'm riding this beast to ensure water is not getting in.









The next step was to run a length of 1/2" heat shrink tubing down over the grommet "snout".








Last but not least, a length of DEET's black wire loom wrap goes over everything with a small zip tie to hold it in place. I hope this will provide several years of trouble free spark and lighting. I hope.







Actually, the last but not least thing I did before the dinner bell rang was install the new chain and chain rollers. Sure was good to get out in the shop with nothing pressing demanding my time.

Looking good, I know your getting anxious. Seeing these before pics reminds me of a little thing I saw on facebook on things that tell the truth. One was children, 2 was yoga pants, 3 can be your before pics.
