Strobe timing Triumph Bonniville T120R
Strobe timing my Bonnie the most important thing is to check whether the mark on your alternator corresponds to TDC (most likely) or for 38deg BTDC. some later cases with a small inspection plug ieT140 type are set for 38deg but it is always worth checking with the crankshaft notches accessed through the plug at base of barrels. Boyer recommend around 5000 rpm to set timing. If you do not have a tacho continue reving until the mark stops moving (advancing) this is the max revs you will need to set timing.
