The more I do the valve clearance check/adjustment the more I find my buckets, intake and exhaust, are ending up being 2.90mm. My milage is around 40K. And the check and adjustment are not hard to do at all. Just follow the directions in the article mentioned. It does help to have an assistant to rotate the rear wheel to advance the cams. Even a 14 year old can do it.
