Valve over adjusted will it hurt the engine?

Recommended Posts

Hello. I have a Honda crf250r that I just adjusted the valves. I decided to give it a little more gap to the intake then the specs call for.

Tolerance is .005 plus or minus one on intake

I have it set for .008. It has a lot of compression now and it worries me

Anyone have any experience doing this will it hurt the engine??

I need fax on the matter not speculation.

Thanks.

Why did you mess with the valve spec ?

I couldn't tell you for sure because you didn't say the year of your bike but it's possible that it's the auto decomp is now ineffective due to the greater spacing

It's a 2012. I did this because the valves are starting to cup and will need replaced soon. I set them like this to get a little more time before having to readjust them since they are cupping. As we all know once they start cupping it doesn't take long to ha e to readjust them again. So I did this to save me having to go back in it next week. Before I replace the valves.
