 +Get the dremel/die grinder out. On the '​back'​ side of the pickup will be a flange around each mount screw hole. Grind this flush with a larger grinding stone. Use a sharpie and a ruler ..or masking tape to define the '​line'​ that would be parallel with the edges of the holes. This will be your grinding guide. Grind the holes out to the right (as looking at the back of the pickup). Keep testing the holes for fit with the new stainless screws. You are DONE when the allen head just clears the pickup coil body on the left side of the pickup(looking from the front/near side as installed).

 +Clean ALL metal filings/​shavings from the pickup and stator.

 +Reinstall as normal(blue loctite on pickup coil and stator mount screws). Start bike and warm up until nice idle is achieved. Adjust to first test RPM (1400rpms in my case).
 +
 +Use timing light to '​find'​ the mark...add timing at the light until mark is in same part of hole (in my case front/left of hole).

 +As you can see....I added 6°to my "base timing advance"​. FOR FREE. IN 30 MINUTES. It is quite enough to make a difference. The test ride was fun....barely wet roads, wheelspin and lighter front end.  :-}

 +For those of you who asked the timing light is from Ferrett see:​-[[http://​www.ferretinstruments.com/​CategorySelect/​TimingLights.html]]
