How on earth do you measure valve lash with a micrometer? A feeler gauge is right on if used correctly too.
Hey, anyone have a set of 640 triple clamps they want to get rid of?
Well, the manual says you can use the marks "of" flywheel (really, it did), but then gives no further input. So if there is some standard way to use flywheel marks you are good to go; either that or KTM mechanics must have factory training to interpret the repair manual...

LC4pilot (and la Familia's Technical Review Unit) did not find that level of precision to be required.
