Valve cover gasket - 03 WR450

Great, thanks for the reply. I'm going to check the valve clearance, I can leave the spark plug in for this procedure right?

I checked my valves and my intakes were around 10mm, maybe a little more, but the 15mm guage definitely wouldn't go. My exhaust valves were at 20mm. I'm assuming this will be alright for the short term, a ride or two, should I set them at the top of the range soon (15mm intake and 25mm exhaust)?

If they are within specs then I would leave them alone until they go out of spec. Just my 2c. Hope this helps.
