I own a 2001 XR650L. I was wondering how ofter you need to adjust your valves? I called my local dealer and they qouted me $150 to adjust them! I am not paying that much to adjust them. I would rather buy the tools to do the job and do it myself. What is involved in adjusting the valves? How do you do it?

I don't blame you. $150 is a bad joke for maybe 30 minutes of real easy labor. I advise getting a Clymer or Honda service manual. also join xrlug, it's a group dedicated to the xr650L on yahoo. It's free, and you'll learn everything you ever wanted to know about your bike. In the meantime, try http://www.geocities...lace/Valve.html
