Intros and a couple of questions

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody. I'm a new thumpertalk member and a new thumper owner. I've been riding mx bikes since 1973, but the 2003 CRF450R I just bought is my first 4 banger.

After reading some of the posts here about valve problems, I'd have to say that I'm a little concerned. The guy I bought the bike from told me that he put stainless steel intake valves in because he had to adjust clearances twice in a relatively short time period. I have no idea what brand, or if he also changed springs. What should I look out for to avoid any future problems? Thanks in advance for any insight you can give me.

Dave

Keep an eye on the valve clearence, change the oil very often, run 20 oz oil in the tranny as the level bolt was put in too low by Honda. Keep an eye on the spokes. Other than that same as you are used to.
