I know its been discussed before, but my Owner's Manual for my U.S. 2008 Versys (KLE650A) shows the Valve Clearance-Inspect check at 24,000 Km/15,000 miles.
I took my Versys to my local dealer for the 15k mile service, specifically for the valve clearance check. Later that day when I picked up the bike, everything was done except for the valve check.
The dealers response was it wasn't due, when I said it was ("...that's why I brought it in....") they said the mechanic misread the manual and bring it back and they would do it.
Brought it back and when I picked it up they handed me a copy of the manual pages with the Periodic Maintenance Chart and all the items checked off for the 15,000 mile service....except for the valve clearance check.
When pressed, they told me the mechanic did do the check and that no adjustment was needed. I had them notate that the check was done on the repair order and left.
The Versys  Service Manual shows 24,000km/15,000 miles for the "CA Model" and 42,000 km/26,000 miles for "Other than CA Model".
"CA" appears to be for Canada in the Service Manual.
My Owners Manual shows the 24 km/15 miles interval, which one is correct?
Anybody get a real answer from Kawasaki?
PS: I also installed a set of Pirelli Angel ST's, a new chain, and a new clutch cable (that should have been replaced back in January when I had my clutch problems but wasn't: http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...ead.php?t=6570
