    The tool goes between two buckets - there should be no problem getting it started. It doesn't mater what your valve clearance is as it doesn't go against a cam lobe, but rather between two lobes. Do...

    Check to see if they are the same size as GL1000s, which use similar ears. Doubt you will find new ones, but I've found old ones for the GoldWing that were in great shape as they are shielded from...
