Hi Sidmarklong, Matty_998cc and Cbr1kfireblade,
I'm pleased you like the article. My 2008 CBR1000RR now has more than 9.000 kms on the clock and I have had it excactly one year now, so it will probably be in 2111 I will do valve clearance inspection on the real blade and write up a new article.
In the meantime, please report any differences you might encounter between your bikes and what is written or pictured in the present article.
I think this kind of DIY articles can help us all to a better understanding of the technical stuf and possibly save us a buck or two.
Cheers .... Fred
