Just pick up some feeler gauges and check them yourself, if you do find one out, then you can decide if you want to do it yourself or take it somewhere. As far as the sluggishness, CHANGE YOUR PLUGS. I change mine every 5k miles or every other oil change. Our bikes are really hard on plugs, it chews them up fast and thats why they have dual ground plugs (they last longer because there is more surface to wear out before the gap gets to big). CR10ek plugs by the way. don't waste your money in the iridium.
Jesus christ dude... Holy overkill.

Valve adjustment is every 26K miles... That price sounds good to me.

Re: Valve Adjustment

checking valve clearance is VERY easy.. adjusting valves is another story entirely. I would get a quote to CHECK valves. The 3rd gen valves are coated titanium valves. The hard coat just doesn't wear for a very long time. Once it wears off though, and the soft TI (soft compared to stainless steel) is exposed to the valve seats, the recess up into the valve pocket pretty fast, your clearance shrinks, and you get lower compression numbers. That leads to hard starts, and loss of power.
Again.. CHECKING clearance is super easy. Pull the tank and airbox outa the way. Get all the plug wires and coils out, the valve cover will come out, and then remove the timing chain/ignition cover. Rotate the crank with teh 12mm bolt to get the intake cam lobes pointed back for each pair you check.. and the exst. lobes pointing forward (all level with the head angle). Slide the feeler gauge under each lobe!
That's it! if you can't get the spec feeler in there, they are out of spec. If you can't get ANY feeler gauge in there.. the clearance is close to or zeroed out.



spark plugs every other oil change?? wow.. LOL .. benefit of that is his plugs should never get seized in the head

OK maybe its overkill but I bought the bike in 09 and it was an 07 with 4000 miles, original plugs and the oil had only been changed twice (stealer-ship receipts). So I have had it 3 years and I have put 35000 miles miles on her (with only a 5 mile commute to work). I have changed the plugs 6 times in three years, so twice a year I change my plugs. I dont think that is crazy but my bike also looks and runs like its Brand New. I can honestly say my bike is in dang near MINT Condition without a single scratch on her. Now there are signs of riding the hell out of her, super tiny pitting only from riding , Chief Smoke Dawg can attest to that when I rode up there for the BBQ. My intake valves even look brand new with a slight gold tint, Not a speck of carbon build up.

Yeah, I might be a little anal when it comes to my bike, But she is my baby. My girl is always complaining I wax my bike more than I wax her, lol. But hey to each there own. If you need any proof of what I claim, I have plenty of Pictures of how clean she is and Data logs of how she good runs in .csv format.

Oh and here is a pic I took last night....
