The problem is the rod is too short on that tool. I posted this in another thread, but for less than $10 you can get a 12 inch long drill bit that works much better.  an 1/8" bit is slightly smaller diameter than the rod that comes with the motion pro tool, but it gets pushed hard against the side wall when you tighten the screw. So it doesn't matter what size bit as long as it fits in the hole. This one is a 7/64.

These long bits are very accurate, you can put them in a drill and confirm they aren't bent.

Their rod is 4mm / .1575" (5/32") round, and even with shipping for 3-feet it'll be less than a good drill bit, AND I'll cut it down to reach and align with the front sprocket!😵

Good tip, got this for checking the alignment on my YZ 250 after swingarm and linkage bearings replacement. Used it on the FJ also. FJ seemed to check ok, but I'm going to get the long bit like you suggested.
