tools needed for valve check

Recommended Posts

for my xr100 I needed the smallest feeler gauge ever....paper is basically thicker than this thing. It is crazy. Like .002-.003 MM I am talkin. crazy.

On my CRF250r, I found the feelers with the 45 degree angle in them to be the best. No need to spend big bucks on name brand ones from a motosport dealer. Just go to the local Autozone / Advance Auto Parts and spend $5.00 on a set. I'm sure different people like different ones. I've heard the long flat ones work well too but I can't fit them under my rocker arm.

Here is a nice write up on how to do it on a CRF250R. Some of the other bike specific forums have them as well.

Be careful when puttting the head cover back on. Don't overtighten and strip the threads.
