Am presently doing my valve checks on k1200lt 2003, followed Gunsmoke instructions, have previously done same task on k1100lt, it really is quite basic, before you start, buy a decent torque wrench & use it, you will find that the standard of work you have recieved previously at dealers workshops, may not have lived up to your expectations, i found a stripped thread on the cam cover, if dealer had used correct settings i should not have found that. some jobs are best left to dealers, this is not one of them, you can also get the settings you want, not just that old chestnut, its in tolerance??.
