I just broke 5000 miles with Katie (my k8 750). In the manual it says to "inspect" several items (brake lines, cable play, etc...). But it doesn't mention anything about valves, and I've heard a few people say something about a valve adjustment after this period of time.

Anyone have any input?

Awesome. How much does one of those run? And I didn't see it mentioned in the manual, but it's suggested that we get one done between 15,000 to 20,000 miles anyway?

You should get valves adjusted for 245 plus tax. And to answer your question, you should definately get the valves adjusted at 20000 or over. Seriously. It is alot easier than you think too. If you could muster doing it yourself it will run you about 70 bucks for the shims or buckets whatever they're called to do it with!

You know how it's hard to watch yourself gain weight because you see yourself in the mirror every day? Same with the bike. Go get those valves adjusted and get on that bad boy and experience the crispness and response of your throttle. Depending on how bad it might have got you may feel a little power gain as well.
Try it, you'll like it!:thumbup:

You can save money on valves if you are willing to work a little on your bike. I just took the bike all the way down to popping off the top of the block. It didnt take very long to break down the bike at all.

I took the bike into the shop (drove it there in my truck)...$20 bucks for the local shop to check the valves out! (They did not need adjustment by the way, at 20k miles on my honda 600rr)
