So my question is, is this something to worry about? Has anybody out there burned any exhaust valves? I really dont want to take the cam out but i dont want to screw the valves and have to do a whole head job either. Any input on this will be greatly appreicated.

I machine down a exhaust shim and after 10 hrs i could hear a loose tappet again .On inspection the valve stem had made a small indent into the shim.......buy the right parts for the job!

Then do it right.
Follow the instructions in the manual to fit the proper shims.
This is probably the only hassle there is to owning a 4 stroke... and once you set them correctly... they might be good for the rest of the time you own the bike.
If you don't... You might end up sorry you didn't.
Just be glad it is not a four cylinder.

Now this could be construed a few ways...
What exactely is the dillema with adjusting your valves?
Set and forget.
