2003 450 all valves are tight

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys, today I was checking my valves, and I noticed that they are all tight. Is this common? Like the exhaust valves are .005. Both of them are. And intake is .003. All of them are. Am I doing something wrong? It's timed almost perfect.

But they are all out of spec evenly? Like literally all of them are the same spec. Exhaust .005 intake .003

And so? They're all still tight, and they all still need correction.  If you check them again in 5-6 hours ride time after shimming, and they've tightened up some more, they're worn out.
