Grounding the voes for timing
« on: November 28, 2019, 07:01:12 PM »
Forgive my ignorance here as it is the first time I am ever installing a voes onto a bike.  When I am going to time the bike with a light the Dyna 2ki, it tells me to ground the voes. What exactly does that mean. Do I ground the wire leading from the ignition module (purple wire) or both wires leading from the voes? So basically like itís not hooked up and plugged in?

Grounding the VOES wire eliminates the VOES as a possible problem when setting timing. Grounding the VOES wire simulates a high vacuum condition and the module will provide full advance (of the selected curve), as that is what you are concerned with when setting the timing.

You can test the VOES after setting the timing and re-connecting the VOES disconnect the vacuum line to the VOES and watch the timing change (retard).

The instructions ae telling you to sound the wire coming from the module that connects to the VOES.
