Just finished my bike and a friends valve adjustments. Both bikes are back to being trail rippers. Found that .010 for exhaust and .006 for intake seems to be the best setting. Both lashes are on the tight side as per the manual. Friends bike was looseing compression, poping on a rev., rough idle and just didn't have the kick. Found three valves not sealing because of a very tight lash. The factory likes to set them (.004) a little too tight IMO. By the way...Honda adjusting pads are the same as Yamaha.
