Shows difference between stock and +4 advance on THIS CBR600F3 - comp exhaust, CRB-H71-17-RK RaceKit, only!
Is a +4 advance a good addition for this particular modified bike?
Yes, on this bike, we'd use the +4 degree, usually. A dyno shows that there are minor power changes, less than 1hp here and there when at full throttle, but at part throttle, (not shown on this chart) power is increased at nearly every rpm - at every throttle position that is less than full throttle. That explains why a rider will say that the bike feels quicker and pulls harder out of corners - because it is quicker and does pull harder - they are not at full throttle - even though a dyno says there isn't a power increase.
A +2 degree advance generally wouldn't lose any power at any rpm at full throttle, but the part throttle power wouldn't be increased as much. Generally, if you feel an unacceptable amount of power loss at high rpm while riding, you would avoid the power loss by retarding the timing in usually 1 degree increments until power picks back up.
Does every model of motorcycle react to timing changes the same way?
No. Some pick up or lose power at different RPMs with more ignition timing lead, but most all have improved power at part throttle settings.

The extension of the laboratory
for engines of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology was completed
in about 1935. Its architect was Rudolf Otto Salvisberg (1882-1940).
He had a successful career in Berlin but returned to Switzerland after
the advent of the Nazis. His architectural style was somewhat similar
to that of Erich Mendelsohn. The staircase of the laboratory is in normal
use but well preserved.
