Timing a CDI

Jackson James /

Hi - I got one of the Tomos OEM CDI kits from treats and I'm installing it on the Batavus Starflite that had a bunch of spark issues- I've wired it up and im getting a nice spark, but it isn't running just yet-- I never checked the timing, and since this was made for Tomos bikes I figured that's probably why it isn't able to start (i think that's sound logic?)

Anyways, I've read through the wiki page about timing for CDI-- I've got my hands on a timing light and i think i understand what I'm doing, but I wanted to clarify one thing that seemed unclear: Rotating and then tightening down the flywheel with the nut is how you actually adjust the timing, correct? Is there a need to rotate the stator plate at all, like you would with a point ignition system?

I'm assuming you're not using a woodruff key with this setup, then yes, that would be correct.
