Hi,

Are the tools that you bought compatible with 2018 BMW RT? I am very interested in buying them too, but before I place the order I want to ensure they are the right ones for my motorbike. It would be a costly mistake otherwise.

Many thanks in advance,
Pano.

There is a difference between the 1200 and 1250 camshaft alignment jigs, also the collar that is used with the cam chain tensioner tool is a different length. Your friendly ( not necessarily local) bmw dealer should be able to sort this for you.

They aren't genuine parts but if they work they work!

You would need the cam chain tensioner too

Thanks for the heads up, I got the alignment pin last year, also the cam alignment jigs arrived for the 1250 motor, the last bit of the jigsaw ( cam chain tensioner tool) is supposed to arrive this month !!.
