I am likely wasting my time since nobody has
confessed to checking their valve clearances
themselves, but on the outside chance that somebody
actually has and not mentioned it, is there a workaround
for the special tool supposedly needed to hold the cam
chain tensioner?

Thank you.

Um...there might be a "template" in the FSM that you can copy then transfer to a piece of thin metal to cut out. IIRC someone mentioned that they cut out that piece from an old license plate. HTH

Get yourself a piece of 1"metal pipe strap the king to hold a bundle of plywood for shipping and form it to specs to make a key. 8_6 in the service manual 15 mm wide reduce to 8.5 mm,3 mm deep , then 4.5 mm 19mm long  total lenght is 15 mm + 19mm .If you don't have any problems leave it alone, save yourself the trouble until any problems occurs .

I'm reviving an old thread again! Timing Chain. Has anybody had a problem with the timing chain on their SW? There isn't much on the forum so I'm hoping that it is not an issue. My old Hondas in the 70's ( Honda K4, G5, and Dream) used to eat timing chains for breakfast and the tensioners used to break quite regularly. (What was that yellow Honda which was a sporty looking version of the G5?).

The top of this thread talks about checking the SW valve clearances. Why would we need a timing chain tool when checking valve clearances?

I wouldn't mind checking the valve clearances as part of my maintenance but where does the timing chain fit in?

Lots of questions...I'm just curious.

90,000 plus miles with two new SilverWings, 2009 and 2013, and no engine troubles---never bothered to check value clearances----I think waste of time/effort. Ever think what you can screw up going in there? And most SilverWings do not get high miles....as they are not ridden that much.

Just as I thought. I think I'll leave well alone. bounce
