GL1000 Dynamic Timing

I installed a Dyna ignition on my 79 wing and did the normal (static) timing. Bike runs pretty good but I think it's still off a bit. Can't locate the clear timing adapter for the timing port and I saw Randaak's timing wheel. This apparently doesn't work on the 79. Any ideas on how I can use a timing light on this bike?

As long as your timing light has an adjustable advance function, anything that shows TDC will do the job. Easiest might be to put a mark the cam under the points cover, or use the ones on the timing belt pulleys.

I'll give it a try on the end of the cam. Seems like the easiest way
