Hey Thump Chumps, its good to see everyone is home! THANKS BILL . I suppose you are all wondering why we are all gathered here today . I would like to know how many of you have actually had to adjust your valves. If so, how many hours or miles and how frequently. Also, the book says to drain the coolant and remove the Radiators???? I don't see an obstruction there, is this nessecarry? I was going to check mine and was thwarted by Yamaha and their cleaver Allen head rounded off motor mount bolts after stripping one out,,,, Grrrrrrrrrr! Anyway it was getting late and I was riding the next day and couldnt find my drill bits so I bagged it. I will check them the next time I get the bike real clean and have some down time, unless they are know to get tight or get out of tollerance alot. The bike had 600 miles on it when I got it and the previos owner has proven to have overlooked some mechanical details like bolting the dampening rod to the end cap in the fork! Thanks guys!
