RFS Valve adjustment

Recommended Posts

How often should the RFS valves be adjusted?

How long should it take a shop to adjust valves,, 1.5 hours?

A buddy of mine has a 400 and he say's they

don't need to be done very often after that

he does his every 2k - I think I will do mine every 1. Make sure your read the second post by jeb. If you do take it - take the seat/tank/radators off and a shop shouldn't charge more than a 1/2 hr.

Thanks TBob, I know I should do this adjustment myself. I thought for the fist time I would have the dealer adjust the valves. I was a little shocked when they wanted 1.5 hrs @ $65 per hr plus parts. It only takes a couple minutes to take the seat and tank off and then one again...wonder what they will do the remaining 86 minutes?

If they remove the radiators, which they should, it takes time. They have to drain them, remove them, etc. I don't leave the radiators in place anymore. It's a pain to work around them. I'm sure I spend 1-1.5 hours on a valve adjustment.
