Well, my dealer's mechanic said these valves don't really go out of spec like the old tappets do. And he was right, so I have a full box haven't used one yet, but I didn't want any down time so ordered the kit ahead of time. The RMATV video on adjusting KTM valves is really good and is what made me decide this was definitely within my wrenching comfort zone. One trick, if you can't get a reading off of your current shims because you are using calipers that are too hard to get a good reading, you can use one of the hot cams shims with a known spec into your calipers, then use your old shim and a feeler gauge and you can subtract and get the spec of the current shim. As one reviewer noted, you really need a micrometer to measure the shims.Read All Reviews

Handy tool, is about 10-1/2" end-to-end. The 1/4" drive head seems to be a bit on the loose side, sockets come off a bit too easy. Squeaks which is odd, will shoot some Break Free or something in there. But, even with those little annoyances this tool is definitely a keeper. Picked up a 1/4" to 3/8" adapter for $5 at the local Auto Z store to serve double duty with 3/8" sockets, if I need more torque for those well then I will use the ratchet.Read All Reviews
