Valve Check Clearance Done

Hey,

Finally got everything removed to check my valve clearance and here is my findings.

Ex - .127 - .152 - .178 - .152 - .152 - .152 - .152 - .127

In - .152 - .152 - .152 - .152 - .152 - .152 - .152 - .127


From what I gather, exhaust clearance needs shims on all except one and
all the intake clearances look good except the last one. Am I correct?

The Ideal reading for all valves ex and in is .195 ex min .170 max .220 int min .150 max .240 looks like you could use an adj on all of yours

Yeah I phoned a bikeshop thats a few hours away from me and they told me the same thing. They told me that I should shoot for 0.202 on all valves so thats what I did. I've ordered all new shims to bring me up to that spec.

Thanks for the reply.
