The tech manual that came with my bike says the timing is preset at 1,5 mm. Now, two things puzzle me...first is that is a comma between the 1 and 5, not a decimal point. Is this a set of tolerances meaning the timing on any particular engine could be set between 1 and 5 mm, or does the little bugger actually advance?

I'm trying to think of how street bikes work (before computer chips and all that shit). Surely they had advancing timing. I figure it's impossible to use a light to check my tomos cuz of the oil pump being mounted to the flyweel cover. Aha!! Maybe if you mixed the oil in thegas tank yourself....hmmm. Something to think about anyways.

The second thing that bugs me is the use of mm as the unit. I did a lot of tech shit in college with metrics, but we used radians for degrees, not mm....mm is a distance...

Dunno if I helped or hurt the conquest,

Lane
