    How does one adjust timing on an 83 R100RT?

    Again....searched quite a bit. The good news is I have learned a lot about adjusting the timing on my 71. I also learned how to read the timing using the strobe. But I just can't seem to find information as to how to adjust the timing on the bean can with Hall sensor. I did see some reference to automatic timing adjustment, so does that mean what it implies - it doesn't need adjustment? If not, how does one adjust the timing?

    Thanks again for all the help. I anticipate that she'll be road worthy in about a week. I'm looking forward to getting some miles on her.

    You rotate the whole bean can, as you would rotate the points plate on earlier models.
