Help, Dealer is quoting 3 hours for a valve adjust
Posted March 13, 2007 - 12:00 PM
I've done it several times myself, it's really not that hard.
I took just the head in to them a year ago to replace all of the valves and seats. That was the only part of the rebuild I was unsure of and wanted done right. Well, they didn't put a valve in right and it started hard from then on. More on that mistake later, but first:
How long should it take to
shim 1 valve and put the cam back in 30m
check for compression 10m
pull the head 30m
replace all 3 intake valves 1 hr
put it all back together 1 hr
That's how long I think it would take if I did it. Does that sound about right? ~3 hours to replace the intake valves?

Anyhow, if you've done it before in 30 minutes, why not just do it again yourself?

I did some searching here and I see the going price for a valve adjust should be $65 - $100 + whatever we settle on for them fixing their incorrectly installed valve. I just hope to get my bike back without having to give up my firstborn.
