Xl250r valve clearance?

I have a 1987 Honda xl250r that was ticking pretty bad. I adjusted the valves last night and it still is ticking today. I read on another thread to set the intake at 0.05mm and exhaust at 0.08mm cold. That's what I set them at lastnight and it's still ticking today. Anybody have any different numbers for this model and has anyone else had this issue?

Expect burnt valves running them that tight.  Those clearances were to meet smog.  The valves won't tick at .004" & .005".  Something else is wrong. 

Are you saying set the intake at 0.004" and exhaust at 0.005"?

I set all our Hondas at 005" both intake and exhaust. Quick and easy to remember. A bit loose is always better than a bit tight.

When they quit ticking you know you have problems.

Ok I'll try that tonight, thanks!

Are you saying set the intake at 0.004" and exhaust at 0.005"?

 

Yes

Are you saying set the intake at 0.004" and exhaust at 0.005"?

 

Yes, but BR is talking "inches", not mm. You're talking mm, so you'll need to convert.

Ya I seen that thanks for the heads up tho. My feeler gauge has both inches and mm but the first thread I read was going by mm so that's why I started there.
