Valve checks?

Recommended Posts

Now that some of you have had your bikes long enough to put some hours on them, have you checked the valves clearances? Just wondering if Suzuki has avoided the intake valve problems of Honda and Kawi.

suzuki has a four-valve design right? you shoud be fine for a while. i cant imagine someone putting that many hours on an rmz450 yet. still, its always good just to check.

Some of the Honda owners had to reshim their intake valves with as little as 10 hours on the bike! And that's not just a rumor.
