Hi all, First, the forums here rock, so much info, Thanks to all.. I am doing a rebuild on an 03 (bottom to top) OEM unless the cylinder is hosed, will wait to see cylinder first.. I will be putting in new valve springs and everything that does not meet up to specs and that the manual say's "New" etc. all new bearings etc. etc. (keeping the bike so total re-build) and taking my time etc. (again such great posts on this topic, Thanks Again!) done a few but always great to learn the easy way.. One post I read to get your valve adjustment before going into the bottom end, another where it say's after the crank / bearings etc. etc. have been replaced.. Question; after a re-build does anyone think that the valves should be set back to factory then shimmed after first or second oil change? Or,, when should they be shimmed (Pre or Post Crankcase Rebuild Expedition)? Many Thanks!
