Brilliant; I think the tool guys at KTM had a laugh when they threw that one in there, but it works.

9.48mm Shims...

For what it's worth, I've been using the 9.48mm shims available from HotCams for a while now. The fit is fine and there are no short comings. The valve stem is 7mm and the button under the bucket is 8, so the shim is not the weakest link by any means. It doesn't float around, nor is is able to cock one way or another.

I think I paid $68 for a two box set with 3 of every size. Sure is nice having every shim size at my disposal. I can now adjust my valves in under an hour, start to finish...

The valve adjustment procedure, always nice to have pictures of procedures that people do.

You can say that again. In fact a "how to video" like the GS guys made would sell and make someone (Pyndon, CP, Flanny & select others) (hint hint) some $$ !

Ya I have one and do all mine own work on all my bikes, but it is nice to see when people come up with ways to do things easier or better. I every time I have had my bike worked (warranty or TSB's) on at the dealer I find something they didn't do or did wrong and guess what they are using as a reference! I have one of the first 950's in SoCal and have gone through all the growing pains with the dealers, I trust the people here for information and ways the address problems and plus I just like pictures!

A joke? Maybe. ...BUT, it really does work!!!!!!! It fits the nuts, and a 1/2 in. drive fits tight in the bottle opener side. I checked my head bolts with it.

I just want to double check myself on this.

The AH screws that hold down the camshafts get torqued to 18 Nm / 23 Nm right??

The book is a little confusing, I would guess the bigger bolt gets the 23 Nm torque?

Thanks. Alaskas come'n quick, and My bike is still in peices.

You've got 2 different size bolts here and 2 different values for each one.
You need to be careful when you're tightening the bolts to avoid distorting the camshaft bridge. I use the following routine:

Tighten each bolt down to 5Nm, working around the bolts in diagonal order.
Repeat using a setting of 10Nm.
Now tighten down the 4 larger bolts to 18Nm.

The 18/23Nm figure you refer to is for the cylinder head bolts.

So the smaller bolts get 10 Nm
and the bigger bolts get 18 Nm

Were did you find this?

Never mined, I found it:
AH bolts on camshaft bearing bridge M8 10.9------10 Nm / 18 NM.

Thanks. Real glad I double checked with you folks on ADVrider.
LONG LIVE ADVrider.
