Pretty much all Yam bike workshops have tools for it, and shim kits on hand too.
Then again there's a lot to be said for self-sufficiency.

But I've got my Vision.
His got him into strife,
Mine just takes me fishin'.

Thanks for your reply.  So I tried the local Yamaha shop in Dallas - no luck so far, only 1 mech on duty due to Covid and the young person in Parts tried to sell me the wrong tool.  And yes I like to do my own work, if possible.   Also an ex Yamaha mechanic told me they charge 5 hrs + for this job. I can see why as I had to remove the fairing, fairing frame, the right side of the main frame, & loosen the radiator...  (what were they thinking?) Will resort to having a tool made, if necessary ( I have the specs), but expensive.

Check farther down the swap shop. pinholz is making them for a reasonable price plus shipping. You would be lucky to find a dealer who would actually do the work whether they had the tool or not. The local dealer here, before he sold out wouldn't service a bike over 5 years old.
