I just figured out how to do it with the tank on, radiator just moved forward, and to pull the air box and throttle bodies out in one piece.

Re: Valve Adjustment

Nice, ya the tank I propped up , air boxed removed , radiator removed, throttle bodys I just loosened and moved them back just enough for the valve cover the clear. I also removed most of the carbon build up on the TB's and air box .

You know how the air box is attached to the throttle bodies with those few bolts? If you just loosen the throttle bodies you can pull the air box off with the throttle bodies still attached to it.

All the valves on the intake side were in spec except one on cylinder #4. For the exhaust side, they were all at the min on the tolerance gap, so I bumped the exhaust valves all up to middle of the tolerance gap. I took her out for a short ride today, she seems to be liking the adjustment a lot. Next ill be doing the throttle body sync, then I can finally get her tuned =) Thanks for all the help guys, heres some pics


good job morrow as much as i want to do my own maintenance, i dont think i have the balls to do this

Re: Valve Adjustment

Ex: [.23|.23] [.23|.23] [.23|.23] [.23|.20]

In: [.15|.18] [.15|.15] [.15|.15] [.15|.13]

After:

----- Cyl #1 -- Cyl #2 --- Cyl #3 -- Cyl #4
Ex: [.27|.27] [.26|.26] [.29|.28] [.27|.27]

In: [.15|.18] [.15|.15] [.15|.15] [.15|.18]

Re: Valve Adjustment

Im trying to get ready for my custom tune soon. So far ive done a valve adjustment , spark plugs , air filter , some sea foam in the tank and a little in the oil, and a fresh oil change. Im waiting for my carbtune tool to arrive from the uk, it should be here this week. So after im done doing the throttle body sync is their anything else I can/should do before hand for best possible results?
