Thumbs up No valve adjustment needed at 26K miles!

Got the 24K service done a little late (just shy of 26K), and my tech said that the valves were fine. In fact, he recommended that I skip the valve check, but we did it anyway. All checked out OK.

Re: No valve adjustment needed at 26K miles!

Joe...just wondering. Did you actually see him check the valves. I think it is encouraging to see the next gen engine staying within specs at that mileage, but I also know that some mechanics will "duck out" on the hard stuff. just wondering.

See, it's perfect so there's no need to sell it! Come on Joe, it's the universe telling you to keep the bike.

Re: No valve adjustment needed at 26K miles!

I read the other tread and I think that you are LOCO but good luck with your decision. Make sure that you have no regrates later. Good Luck and think it twice, I bought mine because of you!!! Let us know,

Joe, I thought your bike had more than 26K? I might have to take the LT out of the deal

Is the old man still there? I remember talking with them many years back when I got bits or the R850C we had at the time.

Be very sad loss if he's passed away.
