Valve adjustment

Recommended Posts

Bought a Yz250fx this summer with a claimed 13hrs. I have probably added 12-15 to that. I decided to check valve clearances and everything is within spec however, the intake side is .002-.003 different from side to side. Is that ok as long as its in spec. Bike seems to start a little harder than I would expect for efi. Also, it appears to be the rear wheel leans to the left. I haven't had a chance to really check it out so far,has anybody else ever noticed this ? Thanks ahead

If the valves are within spec, it is fine. If you think there might be a problem, run it another five to ten hours and recheck. Hard starting after sitting is normal. Always figure on multiple kicks on a cold engine.

The 'Wheel leaning' may really be a tweaked subframe. If you stand on your head, the whole world is upside down ;) It is all relative.
