Good choice of model / year - exactly the same (year, model, and colour) as mine  :152:

Cheers all  :821:

Thanks for the welcome.  :080:
I’m in the middle of valve clearance check and timing chain tensioning, do any members near the Loughborough area own timing chain tensioner tool T3880607 and a torque
Limiter T3880609, to buy, borrow, or rent!!
Or is it possible to use a torque wrench to add 0.6Nm onto timing chain while setting up the timing.  :027: and I’m after 4 shims, a 2.20 2.13 2.27 and a 2.34, I could buy, or swap for shims 2.30 x 4

I’ll post some pics of my Tiger 1200 in one piece, and dismantled, that’s if I can work out how to do it. !! 

Cheers

Bern  :038:
