Question: Hi I'm interested in understanding what the timing is on the 2015 Novarossi R60F, R75F and R90F engines. I believe the Speed 13 engine has 185 degrees of exhaust timing. Is the timing the same on the other engines? Thank you.
Answer: So, Timing on these engines is around 160 degrees. This timing configuration provides a good compromise on performance and ease of handling. Higher timing makes needle settings harder and pushes the requirement to only run on a tuned pipe. Novarossi experimented with various engine timing for the engines and settled on this competitive configuration.
