valve adjusting klr 650?

Recommended Posts

How many miles should I run before valve adjustments?

I now have 6000 on my 2004 klr 650. I have been told go to 12000 and then I have been told to go 2000 miles

Right about now would be good. The Clymer book and I believe the manual that came with your bike will give you scheduled service intervals.

you should definitely check them now. if they are well w/in spec, you can go a little longer next time. my klr needed adjustment during break-in, and very little adjustment over the next 24k miles.

Do it now, I finally got around to checking them on my 04' at 1200 miles. They were way out of spec. My intakes were at .002 and exhaust was set at .005. Called the dealer and they said this was normal. I ask for warranty repair and they said "normal wear and tear." I maintain the engine was built too tight.
