Smile ignition timing adjustment methods

there are several ways of altering the ignition timing
one way is the offset keyway good for about 4 to 6 degrees +or -
then there is the "pole peice modification"
where one grinds off the leading and or trailing edges of the pole peices and you getabout half
the timing change from whay you grind need i say its a onetime adjustment method
and last but not least cutting slots where the mounting screws go through the magnet frame
altough this will allow only 2 or3 degrees change it may be all you need
otherwise machineing a new rotor magnet assembly as the factory one is not a very strong magnet
does anyone have any other good ideas on how togetbettercontrol of the spark in these china motors
and about lighting unless theres a way to seperate the magneto and lighting frames i beleve that
a 2 to 4watt charging circut with batteries is the best hope for good lighting
