How often is it recommended to adjust the valves? Are you guys streching it a little bit. I checked mine at about 100 miles. Was still dead on. I have close to 700 miles now and thinking it might be time.

I check mine every 300 miles or so, when I have the tank off for other work. They are easy to check, so why not? I have not had to adjust mine yet. They are getting toward the low end of spec, but not out yet.
