I've logged about 20 hours of hard riding on my '01 426 and I'm about to delve into the recommended task of checking the valve clearences, etc. Should I expect to find everything within tolerances at this early stage or will I have to tinker with 'em? Thoughts?

If your bike is like my F's, they will still be right on spec.

I have run my 426 for over a year now. I've checked the valves twice and they are still within spec.
