    Cam Timing

    I have a 2010 R1200RT. Is it necessary to do cam timing check when checking valve clearance?

    Not necessary. Cam timing is not likely to change much other than alittle chain stretch.

    Or said differently, if your cam timing is off your engine is broken.

    Ok thanks. Watched video on wet head, and I didn't think cam head needed to be checked.
