1190 timing Lockpin substitute?

I decided to check my valve lash, and glad I did... it is tight already with 7,500 miles.

Anyway, you have to remove the cams to change the shims... and need KTM tool 61229015000, which is only like $23 but it will probably take a week to get here and I need it now.


It looks like it is just a long threaded pin with a point ground on it. Is there any reason I couldn't buy a bolt and sharpen a rounded point on it to perform the same thing (lock the crank in TDC)?

goes in this hole and at TDC I can see a small indent on crank at bottom of threads:

What would you like pics of? The substitiute tool, or you mean removing cams to change shims?

The tight valve clearance explains the harder to start when it was hot symptom I had. I guess the dust did wear the valve seats afterall, even if everything is stil sealed up well (leakdown was 1% each cylinder). Glad I checked instead of just thinking I was good to go.

I have both those tools in stock and the threaded rod is really just a long allen screw with a tapered end.

And you are right near by too! But too late, I already just used a 8mx1.25 bolt with the end ground into taper. It seems to work OK. I tried to turn engine and couldn't so it should stay locked with cams out.

It would be better to have higher grade bolt, but I used what was easily available.

Get an 8x1.25 theaded rod from McMaster-Carr. You can make enough of these for all your friends. The annodized black is hard enough for removing crank bolts. Not so for the zinc coated rod.
