You can check the last 6 digits of your vin number. If it starts from 601012 or later then it's one of the ones that needs the adjustment.

602750 - makes me a lucky winner !!!  :006:

I think i'll try giving the shop where the bike was purchased a call and see if they have any record of the 12K service being done.

Thanks again for the info

Not to get the cams out. It's just so the sprockets move to take out the initial cam chain stretch

I don't even think there is a way of knowing if it has been done if they're not sure.

Oh ok, so without the tool the cams and timing will be like they were prior to the cam removal. The tool just gets everything back to factory spec provided there has been chain stretch. Thanks.

The tools lock the crank in place and the cams in place so the screws on the cam sprockets can be removed and new screws fitted. It only gets done in the first 12k service and you don't need the tools any more after that

So even if your valves don't need to be adjusted, that timing procedure should be done at 12k?

Yes. Even if they're in spec it all needs to come apart for the timing

Alright. Thank you very much for the explanation. That's much different than  my early 2011 was then.

Yea. They say you should notice the difference when it's done if you've rode the bike the whole time
