Valve Adjustment Question

I'm not sure I want to do the valves myself. My question is... what's a reasonable shop time if they have to shim. My guy is good. It's straight time, and I usually bring the bike in partially disassembled to save costs.

I'd guess that if you brought it in w/the valve cover loose, 1.25 hrs wouldn't be unreasonable if the cams needed pulling...probably 15 minutes just to check clearances...

Well basically I would bring it in with the body work stripped. Tank would have to come off, air box etc., but none of the plastic.

On the Versys, the fairing takes 10 minutes to come apart, so unlike other bikes, it's not the bulk of the work. Removing the tank, airbox, etc. is where the big time sink is. Two hours seems right to me.
