I noticed on my stator, there's 3 "index marks" by one of the screw holes, for adjustimg timing. Assumably by +/- 1*. My stator was in the stock ?center" position. Has anyone gained any performance or any advantages at all by advancing or retarding the timing? I've adjusted timing on my vehicles before, but never on a two-stroke. Do the same principles apply? I read somewhere that retarding timing on a two-stroke is where the power is made. Is this correct? Anyway, any help is appreciated!
