Torque wrench for cams??

can anyone tell me what torque wrench will reach and torque cam bolts on a yz426f ? I have 2 torque wrenches and neither will reach all the bolts.

Thanks

I use a 1/4" inch pound wrench, fits perfect.

I use a flex beam 1/4" wrench for this, but they can be very difficult to find. The alternative is to use a torque adapter, such as this one:

When these are set onto the torque at a 90 degree angle to either side, you don't need to compensate for the added length.

Thanks for the link Gray. I'm going to order one, but was also looking for a 12 mm adaptor for the forward and rear cylinder bolts that you can't take a socket/wrench to. For some reason they jump to a 13 mm and don't offer a 12 mm adaptor. I wonder why? Also, they are pricey little buggers!

Snap-on is not the only source of that type of wrench. You may want to look elsewhere.

I don't remember having any problem getting my torque wench down on the head bolts (it's a newer Snap-On 3/8" digital), but the bolts would not clear the frame with the head on the cylinder.
