How often do you adjust the valves? Also what are the signs that they need to be adjusted thanks
I can't believe that you haven't downloaded this free condensed service manual :
This page is an extract from that manual .
I do have the manual but I was wondering if when they did check there valves, do they often do it at the recommened miles or longer. I know in the past some of my other bikes that when I did check the valves they were okay. Also if they do need do get adjusted what are the problems that would indicate that they needed to get adjusted Thanks
The factory recommendations are set so that problems can be avoided . You can see the poor performance that happens when proper maintenance is not kept up . Things wear out much sooner . I see it all over , especially in older machines that are being brought back to life . Impropper maintenance is why those older machines 'died' .
on my xt's I usually checked/adjusted the valves every 6000 km or 2 years.
6000 km = 3728.23 miles .
