Since the 1150 GS has different heads, cams and intake manifolds I believe there ARE differences in the VE (fueling) and Spark Advance tables. I plan to put a GS Coding Plug in my bike to see if there are any obvious Spark Advance differences.

What I was getting at with my comment is that I see several ways to adjust the fueling of the 1150 but I see no real way to adjust timing. Timing looks like a very dynamic matrix that you might change by swapping coding plug but not be able to effectively adjust by several degrees to a new value. For instance you can use a Wideband O2 to adjust closed loop fueling 4% richer or use a powerfommander to shift fueling but I don't see a way to adjust timing by 3 degrees at 5000 RPM with 50 degrees of throttle.

When I get a chance I will plot the 1150 GS plug. Then at least we will know the landscape.

It is also worth mentioning (even though I didn't plot it) that the dwell angle is very dynamic and changes somewhat differently from the advance curve. So the dwell time is variable based on TPS and RPM.
