He was just saying they tend to tighten over time not loosen.
It is very important to check your valves after a few rides on a new motor b/c they tighten up fast when new. Once the bike has a few hundred miles on it the valves tend to stay in spec longer.
BTW, I've had my WR for 4 yrears and never had a valve loosen.

The first time is the worse. It took me weeks to undestand this all this winter but I thnk I could do another within just one day now.
When you unmount the valve lifters (ti caps), try to do things such that you'll be able to reinstall the each valve lifter at their original place.. It is not dramatical if you don't but always better to do so.
The lifters should slide thight but easily in their place once lubricated with engine oil.
