So I finally did it. After having my bike for about a year and a half, I finally had someone take a look at the valves. I know, I know, I probably waited way too long And I figured I would take it back to the shop where I bought it, I consider myself somewhat mechanically inclined, but with little to no experience on motorcycles, so I figured I would fork out the money to have it done right the first time. When I went to pick it up, I was anxious to see what they found. 4 out of the 5 valves were still dead on, and one exhaust valve needed just one shim to bring it back to specs I was stoked, and once again I know why I ride Yamaha, what a great bike!!
