    Setting timing on a 00 slx 1200

    Is it possible to set the timing with the motor in the hull? I did a static timing check and found that it's off just a little bit. But don't see how it's possible to even get near the cover or even the flywheel with the motor in the hull.

    that would be a very difficult task, it would infact be easier to pull the motor and mock it up on the bench

    Remove the glove box insert and you can see through there.

    i used a round mirror on a telesopic handle.flash the timing light into the mirror and down into the hole,helps to mark the timing line ahead of time with a piece of chalk or paint

    I ended up just pulling the motor. Being as I've never set the timing before on a Polaris I wanted to be able to see what I was doing. It was kinda of p.i.t.a. But at least I know it's set right now.
