Idiot's guide to valve adjustment?

Just wondering if any of you extremely intelligent regular visitors to this forum had put one together for the WR?
I did a search but it seems I'm no better at searching than I am at re-shimming!

I believe the manual actually mentions something about placing a rag or something over/in the timing chain hole to avoid that specific issue - from what I hear, it's less complicated than greasing the swingarm/linkage bearings.
This is true, but there is another place that the circlips can get into the case. Don't assume that you are good to go just because you have stuffed a rag into this void. There is a bolt hole that goes all the way into the case, I dropped one of my clips down this hole and spent half the day retrieving it. Hope this helps.
