Its not a valve job, it just checking the valve clearances.
Also, the AIS removal is very easy. if you can turn a wrench, you can do it...but if you going to have someone do the valve clearance you may have them do the AIS too.
I like the VP fuel but when you can get 93 at the pump the VP is overkill.
Since it doesn't sound like your a wrench, did you rejet the bike or have someone else do it? It will need done to really make it run.

Really, check the valve clearences after a 100 miles? I was thinking of checking mine at 500..?

The valves will only tighten up and the bike will become hard to start. When this happens you will need to put some smaller shims in the buckets. I race regularly with my WR and I re shim my valves about every 2000 miles which is about once a year.

An 06 "OTD for $3699". I call Bull :ride:

it is MORE imperative to check your valve clearances after the break in period...There is alot of "seating" that will occur in this time period...

and after that, the need to shim should be less and less frequent.

these mods are typically pretty easy to do and very well instructed here on tt and among other places. if you are ever interested in either hitting the dez or something hit me i go at least twice a month. next ride is husky monument june for the 99 octane stuff do not worry about that pump 91 is ok as long as you are not going big bore or anything....
