My bike is an 01' and I am the second owner. I recently experienced a slight bottom end lug after running leaded fuel (should help valves seat better) and some trouble getting it started. I cleaned my air filter and that lug disapeared, but today when I went ot start it I had trouble with and without the choke on. Finally I tried the hot start even though the bike was cold as could be and it fired right up. I figure it's time for the valves to be ajusted no matter what.
Can any one tell me exactly how to ajust my valves or would I just be better off paying my local race shop $90 to do it ?
