Separate names with a comma.

One pin is always engaged when the engine is running.
I know you have hands on experience, but all the videos I've seen, looks like pin shifts the cam over and then retracts. It looks like if a pin stayed engaged, the cam would slam back and forth. I'll take your word for it though, as I have only seen pics and video...thanks again.
Just curious--If a solenoid should fail, does anyone know the price of a replacement? Bob's and Max's parts fiche don't list the 1250 yet.
I will try and find that information for you.
As far as I know dealers are still getting updates for their 1250GS/GSA parts so that also takes time for their web sites to refresh.
The pins could be wear items over time. This would concern me more than solenoid failure. As long as the pins and grooves are robust, this looks like a smart simple system.
SWITCHING CAM ADJUSTER Qty 2 Part # 11 38 8 567 153 Price ea. $461.23
Look at the shape of the slot. As the pin retracts, the other pin rises and pulls the cam over. Then the slot stays round and the cam can't move. The slot has a riser in it that once pulled over is no longer engaged.
I suppose it is possible, but the pins appear hardened, and will last the life of the cam.
Thanks for getting this information.
I called my parts person and he gave me another part number for the shift mechanism, so I don't know if this was the updated part number or if yours was the more correct number.
Here it is: 13639446410
