I would set it at 3.4 mm BTDC.
When it was new, it was running on leaded fuel. The new premium probably acts in a similar fashion. I can not think of any reason to change it.
While you have the dial gauge out, check the run out at the end of the crank, both sides. Whacking the crank with the BFH, can cause a wobble. This is easy to do with a single, and probably nothing happened with the twin.
