In order to adjust the valves (by installing different thickness shims) on a K75 or 2V K100, you need a couple of special tools: one to compress the valve spring and another to hold it down while you swap the shims. The Clymer manual lists these as part numbers 111720 and 111722 respectively.  You can by them from BMW for $100 (see attached drawing below)

Or you can purchase some homemade ones:

Not those, at least not yet, but I bought my clutch alignment tool from him.
He ships fast, price seems reasonable.

I also purchased the clutch pilot.  It was simple and, for the money, a good buy.  Since I don't have access to a lathe, buying ready made is the only option.  To have a local machine shop turn up a clutch centering tool would easily be three times the price.

More kudos for Kenneth.....Gave him a quick call to let him know there's an order coming his way this evening - after working hours, at that - sent the funds via paypal, went to town to do a few errands, and got home to find an email stating that my order had shipped (usps). Just that fast, and again, after hours on a workday.

Wow.   :2thumbup:

I wish that sort of service were available all the time, everywhere.   :yes

I also did end up getting a set - they work great! Shipping to Canada was reasonable too.
