Default 06 klx250 ignition advance

I'm interested in advancing the timing on my 06 klx.
I've found playing with my tuner car that ignition makes a bigger difference than afr.
Does the 06 use a cam sensor like the newer bikes?
Is it adjustable/
Has anyone played with this before?
thanks
marc

Ignition is triggered by the crank. The pickup coil is mounted with the alternator coils. The best that I can figure is that the spark is electronically retarded at low rpms. You will have to elongate the mounted holes for the alternator coils to add additional advance to the spark.

Ride on

I know very little on this, but I believe that someone posted an offset Woodruff key that was designed for advancing the timing. Kind of a work around.

what a great idea. Thank heavens there are a lot smarter individuals out there than I. I'd be a bit concerned with shear forces though. Lord knows I paid my dues with woodruff key issues on my TE610.
