Sounds like the bike was timed for full advance rather than static/idle. I had to do the same for my GS so that it would run correctly.

But I set my valves according to centered TDC mark, not adjusted for the altered timing.

Others may chime in differently but my bike is happy according to plug readings and performance.

*EDIT* Never mind, AW and HG picked up on the issue better than I did.

I love every motorcycle I've owned and even some that I haven't.
