08 WR450 Valve Lash: After visit to shop
Posted January 16, 2009 - 08:07 PM
I just got my 08 wr450 back from the shop. I had the guy check the valves, and he said they all look good. The bike starts well, but I just checked the valve lash numbers that he wrote on the receipt and they are as follows:
IN#1: .005 IN#2: .0045 IN#3.0045 EX#1: .007 EX#2: .007
Doesn't that mean that the EX valves are too tight?? I'm going to call tomorrow but maybe I am missing something....
Any feedback would be great...I may already know the answer if the measurements are right...

minimum is .0079 so your below that at .007 .
they need a very slight adjustment , would think they would of told you this when it was half torn apart . not put it together and be like o we checked them they were out of spec and then put it all together , we now recommend you take it apart and re-shim them .
if you were getting them checked again in 15 hours , i would leave them (actually i would of done them when i checked the valves and found out that they were out of spec ). if you are getting them checked again in say a year - 2 years i would just do them now and get it done with .
