Hi guys, whats a realistic interval between valve checks on a 02 L model? or what does Honda recomend. Bike will be used for anything from freeway to dirt, nothing abnormally hard though.
Thanks a bunch.

I usually go 4000 between checks. As of the last at 16,000, they have all been checks, no adjustment needed. :thumbsup:

In the 5000 mi. I have on the OD I checked twice and have only had to make one adjustment to one valve. I think I will only check every 4000mi from now on.

I check mine every 2K to 3K miles because I like to keep her in check and it only takes a couple minutes. I have checked her twice and she didnt need any adjustment.
