Kientech Valve Adjustment tools

Recommended Posts

I am quickly approaching my 600 mile service. Anyone use the Kientech Engineering valve adjustment kit?

I am all for having the right tool for the job, but don't want to throw money away. I have done valve adjustments on a KLR 250 (locknut type valve adjustment) and have feeler gauges, etc...Is there an advantage to Jesse's feeler gauges versus the craftsman set in my toolbox?

If you have this set, do you feel it is worth the money?

I did mine without Kientech's kit. There isn't a whole lot of room to work with and the threaded adjusters are sometimes hard to keep from moving when you tighten the lock nut. Any feeler gauge with a bend at the end will work, the advantage is the other part of the kit that holds the adjuster. Next valve adjust I will probably order the kit to make things easier.
