Thanks noman. I've checked the timing at a bit under 1000rpm and at about 4000rpm. The timing mark jumps around a tiny bit at idle but not much. The timing is fine at 4000rpm

I've fitted a Seibenrock 1000cc kit on my 1972 SWB R75/5. Once fitted, I followed the manual instructions on motor run-in and kept the valves clearances wide (+0.1mm) for the first 1000 miles.
