Welcome to the forums. There's no way to adjust the ignition timing as the timing advance is built into the function of the CDI. You can check the ignition timing, but you can't adjust it.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

You can find a link to the service manual in the manuals/schematics section of this forum.

you some how didn't get your timming set right..by this..i mean you didn't set your crank..cam..valves for the bike to fire at the right time, this is where your timming chain..valves and crank come into play, if you don't get all of these set right..not only will you not get the motor to run..but you risk doing alot of motor damage to your engine..such as valves getting smacked by your piston..destroying your piston and valves.

Actually, it's not gear to gear, it does have a timing chain. The timing chain and cam are behind the front crankcase cover on the 420 Rancher.
