Hi Everyone,
 
I've recently got a MZB Powerdynamo ignition system for my RD400. I am setting my timing but the manual is a bit unclear as to where the Sensor pickup needs to be aligned with the raised portion on the rotor. Could anyone tell me where the leading edge on the rotor (Red Line) needs to be aligned with the sensor pickup (Blue, Green, or Yellow line) once I have my timing set?

Yellow. As soon as the leading edge of the trigger enters the coil field.

The spark occurs when the red line you have drawn, relative to the rotor, aligns with the yellow line, relative to the pick-up. When I set mine up, I had a hard time imagining that that would be when the spark occurred, but when I checked it with a timing light, sure enough, that was it. I guess one way to describe it is to imagine if the snout of the pick-up extended all the way to the drum of the rotor. the spark occurs a the point when the raised trigger on the rotor would hit the pick-up.
