I can't say much about the 4 degree trigger wheel, as I don't have one on my bike. However, I do have a rather unique ability to change the timing any way I would like at any point in the rpm range with my laptop. I can tell you that the engine does like more timing at idle. In my experience it makes for more torque and stronger acceleration in the lower rpms.

There are some here who have used the 4 degree trigger wheels, and I'm sure they'll chime in soon. The only thing I might be a little concerned about would be that a 4 degree trigger wheel is a mechanical way to fool the ECU. Meaning that it may also cause it to be 4 degrees further advanced at full advance than normal. I suppose this could cause some spark knock, but I don't know.... I've never had a problem with preignition on my Wing, and it advances at some points up to 38 degrees. I have no idea what the stock timing is.
