    Cam chain tools

    I've tied two generic tools, one a tusk type generic multi size chain tool. It's best for drive chains.... total useless for peening the cam chain in my opinion with the centre punch method, the second was a specialist cam chain tool, it to was a pain in the arse to use and no better at peening......

    Bought the factory tool, what a revelation this was. No way you can over squeeze the joining link like the generic tools can do, and the peen is factory perfect match. And like any purpose designed tool it has awhile host of neat features because it is purpose made for this sole task, that make using it a breeze.....

    Ordered mine today, too risky, can easily see the problems with using the cheaper tools.

    Kiwi did the cam-chain on my XC when we fitted the 806 cam.
    Perfect job, & impossible to tell from the factory links.
    Nice piece of kit, would have to buy one if Kiwi didn't live so close

    I have had good luck using the motion pro tool, although it doesn't look like the factory did it.
