Re: Valve check with plugs and wires
I've been hesitant about doing a valve check this time of year. Here, is is near the 95 degree max. recommended check temp. and the bikes are in a metal pole barn garage in full daytime sun. W/o getting up at the crack of dawn (not going to happen) it is pretty close to that max temp., which would make things expand, making the gap actually larger at cooler temps.?
