Feeler Gauges - Set Vavles on 09RT

2245 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  mtrevelino
Where can I get a good set of feeler gauges to set the valves and rockers on my 2009 R1200RT? Are the gauges used for gapping plugs different than those needed for the valves?

Any Auto Supply store, any good hardware store, but a feeler gauge for the valves may or may not work well for your plugs.

Depending on the plugs which may or may not have more than one "finger"... a flat gauge might not work well. Plugs typically nowadays use a wire-type gauge.... but, most modern plugs do not need setting.

Typical BMW plugs last 20,000 or more then replace.
