That link will be all you need to set the timing and gap.

The tires are another issue. Cheng Shin and Sava don't make a 18" tire that i can find. Sava lists a 18x2.25 with optional whitewall in their catalog, but their american distributor is permanetly out of stock. has regular and street tread options. Post something if you find a American source. You can get a kind of knobby 18x2.25 from a motorcycle shop, if they have the right catalog. They look kind of silly, but its all i've found local so far.
