How often does the timing need to be checked?

I have the Ducati ignition, set it when I had to replace the HES around 30k KM, checked it 15k KM later and it was fine. I check it every year or 2 but unless I mess with it it's never needed adjustment.
Past afflictions include limey cars and motorbikes, an R60/2, R65ls, & a Citroen.

Ok, this is probably a dumb question, but what happened to Chapter 10?

Chapter 10 tells you how to unleash the remove the the factory horsepower/torque limiter. Sadly the chapter has been hidden as well.
