Re: Valve check??
Make sure you have it in 1st gear. It should be easy to rock the rear wheel back and forth to bump the engine around. Did it many times, on multiple bikes.
Pulling the plugs before checking the clearances is a no-no on these engines, can cause false readings.
edit; Wrong! Don't know what I was thinking about, it is 5th gear you want!
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

No bike now, but maybe in the future.
