Re: Valve Clearances, 44k miles
My bike is currently in the garage having some work done. It's a 929 with 24k on the clock, purely a road bike. I asked the guy about the valve clearances, because although it has a full service history, and so in theory ought to have had them done at 16k, I have no way of knowing if they actually were done. The guy said that on a Honda he doesn't usually do them until around 30k, as they don't really need it, and if they haven't been done at 30k then he doesn't bother to do them anyway.
However, because my bike is being tuned by him, he said he would put some kind of machine, I forget the name of it, onto some part of the engine, that can sense the relevant information and if required they would be altered, but if it was running fine then it will be left as it is. It will be going on a dyno etc. as part of the work.
I hope that is of use. Anyone know the machine he is talking about?
