Any of you guys have a 99'yz400 manual, that you would beable to look up the valve clearance specs for me? I'm tired of waiting for my manual to come from baja designs. I want to go out riding this week, but I would like to beable to adjust my valve before I do. I found the web site that goes through the procedure , but now all I need is some specs.. Any help that could be giving, would be grately appreciated.......THANKS

Crazy, I've got a 99 Manual but not too hip on how to read the chart. Let me know exactly what your looking for and I'll find it.
Also I'm new to this group so I hope I'm posting correctly

BTW guys, I've compared the Valve Clearance chart in my 99 manual with the charts from your 426's and they are different.

twej, thanks for your help. if you could please let me know, what the factory shim is if they say,so I have an Idea of what size shim i need before i take the bike apart. If it differs from bike to bike don't worry about it then. The most important thing I need is the specs for the intake, and exhaust valves. so i know if the valve clearance is still ok or not. Thanks again.
