Valve check/adjustment with pics

I just hit 15K so a major service is in order. I'm gonna do my valves in the next 2 weeks...just waiting on new plugs. I searched and didn't find a HOWTO on doing the valves in Perf and Tech...so I'll do one with pictures. My fingers are crossed that I won't have to pull cams but then again if I do it'll be better for the masses I guess. More to come when I get my new plugs.

I did it...finally... I had to wait a week for 1 damn shim but she's all back together and pulling like a Clydesdale again. I put the HOWTO on my website for my other buddies as well...Enjoy.

Just did the 30K check on my '04 ZX10R. All within specs. Use & Abuse: Spirited rides in the country and track-day play.
Took some pictures of proper 2 position/16 valve crank/cam alignment per service manual.
