WR 426 Valve check time
Posted September 23, 2006 - 05:32 PM
I would like some hints, advice, suggestions, short cuts, do's and dont's, etc. from those of you who do your own valve checks. How much time does it take? How complicated is the task?
The bike is a 2002 so Im wondering if there's anything else I should be upgrading while I'm in there. Is this the time to replace the piston, throw in a decomp cam, or replace any other wear items? At what clearances is it time to consider new valves? What kind of valves are people having good luck with, stock, del west, kibble white?
Thanks for the input and suggestions. The old girl still runs like a champ and I have no interest in trading her in.

Pick up a repair manual, I have both the factory Yamaha and a Clymer manual, either will work. If you are in the San Diego area I am willing to loan you a manual and even assist if you need it. Good luck.
