Have been trying to locate the alignment jig.... P/N83302327796 for liquid cooled boxer. Bike Bandit lists them but upon placing an order was told the item is no longer available. Any ideas or a used one no longer needed.
Thanks

I don’t believe it’s necessary, @dburton. Clearly during manufacture it saves time, but it’s simply a matter of aligning the flats in the cam ends (optically, or with a steel rule if you like), with the engine not having been turned since cams were lifted, of course. The Haynes manual has a guide how to make an engine TDC locking tool but even that isn’t really necessary for this task.
