By the way...Honda adjusting pads are the same as Yamaha.

The first hint was the fact that I could push the kicker through the entire cycle without useing the de-comp. lever by just useing my right arm. Not good. Then I could hear air hissing back through the carb when getting close to TDC.
On our last ride, the 400 would pop with rev. After the valve adjustment the kicker is rock steady and idles sweet with no pop on rev. My 426 had one tight intake lash and one tight exhaust lash and I now feel more of a kick when I hit the fuel twister. It takes only an hour or so to check the lash, or three beers.
