Timing dials and test rides

I got a new timing dial for Xmas so i thought i would double check i had set it correctly on the Tomos. Timing set at 2mm BTDC. Next i fitted the chain and foot pegs and although it was a bit wet out i took the Tomos for its first test ride. First thoughts are that the gears on A35 change much more smoothly than the old A3 engine. I didn't take it past 30mph as the road was wet and muddy so didn't get onto the pipe but low end is about the same as the A3. I did notice a slight ignition flutter while accelerating as i may need to adjust the timing to 1.8mm BTDC.
I can't wait to get it out in the dry to see what the top end is like.
