    Valve Adjustments, have you had it done?

    Just curios how many members have had their valve adjustments done or measured.

    Not asking how to do it, but just would like for those folks who had it done to let me know if they did it themselves or if they had a shop do it, and if so, how much did it cost.

    Re: Valve Adjustments, have you had it done?

    Mine are due at my next major service (24K miles) I'll have a bigger bike (FZ1) by then so I'm afraid I probably won't be able to help much.

    I'm off bikes for the moment because I used to have a Black 2007 FZ6 Fazer S2 with Scorpion cans, Puig screen, bd43's dual headlight mod, and frame sliders. Then I had a K7 Suzuki GSX-R 1000 with Arrow cans, Pazzo levers, Suzuki double bubble screen, R&G crash bungs, R&G rear cotton reels, etc... but some b*stard stole it too!

    Re: Valve Adjustments, have you had it done?

    I've checked mine twice, most recently 3 weeks ago @ 52K miles. No adjustments were needed either occasion, but a few were at the lower limit this time.

    52k miles with no adjustments? Superb, thats impressive for any bike, especially such a high reving one

    the 24k seems a bit conservative then

    Re: Valve Adjustments, have you had it done?

    I am up for it in 500 miles. Not sure I'm going to do it right at 24,000 on the dot. I will probably wait until 25 or 26,000. It costs a lot to have a shop do it. And I'm not comfortable doing it myself. It sounds like waiting an extra 1 to 2,000 miles won't be a bad thing (but I could be wrong).

    No, in order to save money I sell my bikes and buy a new one prior to any major service that is required.

    I did it just a few days ago, only 1 exhaust valve was tight. Everything else was still in spec.

    Still waiting for the member to post that they had it done by some shop, I want to know how much they paid, or how much should it cost.
