Holding set RPM by hand when timing ignition

Another tip from my tuning techniques is that when holding RPM at 3000ish RPM to set max advance timing it helps to have a second person to hold the throttle. You will usually find that the person continually fluctuates the RPM up and down trying to keep it steady. Easy fix is to have them to get the RPM close to the target setting and then hold the collar on the throttle grip still like a throttle lock with a thumb grip from their other hand. (i.e. two hands) Easier to fine tune and hold RPM steady that way.
