Got buckets?

Now that football is over, my winter maintenance @48k is well underway. First valve adjustment for my LT and I am in need of the following buckets:


4 x 2.800
2 x 2.850


Any help out there?

Re: Got buckets?

That's quite a few buckets you need. I did mine last summer and have one 2.85 bucket available.

Ya, 7 are actually out of spec (I can reuse one of those), 6 are at the minimum tolerance and only 3 are above the min tolerance. After replacing and moving a couple around, I'll have 4 min-spec valves, all on the intake, and she should be good for another 48k

Thanks Zeke! It never ceases to amaze me how the people of this site continue to pay it forward. It will keep these bikes going for a long time.

Re: Got buckets?

I have traded my self into nothing but 2.90s over the years. But on a happier note none I have ever adjusted has ever needed it again even after 50 K since the last adjust.
