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?

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 :bmw:

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.

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.
