    No, it came with a calibration card. It is supposed to be within 2 percent the card showed it to be within .2 percent from bottom to top. If you use a torque wrench regularly, it is worth it. Don't drop it or use it in place of a hammer though.

    How I wish they had…then maybe we wouldn’t have to do clutch spline lubes at 40k.

    Works for me. Oh…thanks for the OVAD and TBSD, awesome resources.

    Hi All,
    maybe the more computer savvy of you can help me. I can watch the video but the colors are all screwed up - like a "fuzzy negative" - am IU missing a video decoder or something? Thanks much!

    I thought for sure the feeler gauge was going to be pinched in after that and was surprised that it wasn't! But then again, that wouldn't make for a very convincing instructional video... :wink:

    Great stuff... I want more!

    Well I found them disappointing after the F650 Chain Gang videos!

    Not once did this bloke mention "doohickies"! :D

    (Very useful stuff, thanks.)

    Is the 12GS (hexhead) procedure materially the same, such that a noob who follows these videos can figure out how to do his 12GS?

    When the course instructor demonstrates how to check and adjust the cable free play at the throttle body, he is actually pulling the cable casing enough to pull the thottle cable as well, the latter which shouldn't be done. You can see the cable move in the video.

    To do that step correctly, using the other hand, place a finger on the cable pulley located on the back side of the throttle body, so as to force the pulley against the idle stop. Then with the other hand, pull on the cable casing and check the free play. Adjust as necessary.

    Damn amateurs!

    That's a cool tool to torque the head bolts with but wouldn't a half turn do the same thing?

    great video...
    but I do have a question:

    he "torques" the rocker nuts to 40N-M AND apply another 180 degree turn....why not indicate the proper torque value rigth away?

    That is the 'new' way that these heads are torqued. If you get a tech manual you'll see it spec'd out just that way.

    <BR>The 1200?

    Valve Adjust: The rocker arm assembly and valve adjust are the same as 1100/1150.

    Ignition timing / Hall sensors: The timing cannot be adjusted; the sensor is in a fixed position.

    Throttle body synch: The idle sync cannot be adjusted. The high speed/cable adjust is the same.

    V-belt adjustment: No V-belt adjustment possible. The alternator is fixed and the special elastic belt stretches around the pulleys. If you've ever put a slipped chain back on your bicycle you have installed the V-belt on a 1200.

    Because "angle torquing" is far more accurate.

    You "pre-load" the fasterner by applying an initial torque so that you have a relative starting point for the torque applied by the angle torque.

    Using just a Nm value, you have far too many factors that can affect the torque: finish on the fasteners, dry or lubricated, etc. Torquing by angle, none of that comes into play.

    Looks to me like he torques to 20 Nm. Where did you see 40? That's only on the M10 bolt.

    I find that if I pretighten the lock nuts somewhat less than the torque value needed, and then use the torque wrench, the gaps remain constant.
