Noobie question. Do I need to change my timing?

I just ordered a "puch bing metal hi flow filter, a puch tecno circuit performance exhaust pipe and a shit tun of jets for my 78 puch maxi luxe. Will I have to change the timing?

Besides playing with my jetting what will I have to do?

My setup as of right now:

12mm bing (needle on 2nd clip from top)

e50 (I think my ''maxi luxe" came w/ hi comp head, stock) (edited)

No. Just buy an upjet and your good.

If you want it doesn't hurt to check the timing but I wouldn't change it unless its off.

Awesome, thanks for the help man.

Oh it's off alright all puchs are flawed and have too advanced timing but on a stock cylinder they seem to run on any stator setting

Re: Noobie question. Do I need to change my timing?

78 seems rather large for a stock 12mm bing. I have a feeling you will be way too rich. You might be in the high 60s but it has been a while since I have run a 12 bing.

Never came with a hi comp head stock.

A hi torque cylinder and head but not a hi comp head

About mid 60s jet will be good

Re: Noobie question. Do I need to change my timing?

you can probably just turn the stator plate a little bit retarded and 'feel' for where the timing is the best. the bike will probably want it to be a few degrees retarded of stock, so just try turning the stator a little at a time and feel for where it runs the best.

but yeah, check to make sure your stock timing is good, good points, etc.
