Tight? Anyone else? 2009 KLE650
My check at just under 17k miles, which I performed myself, led me to the following: Using a feeler gage set, I slid the in tolerance gage in with a little push, and the gage snapped into the gap. The next smaller gage, which is out of tol, slid in nicely.
So I am right at the tight tolerance in all valves. At least they are all the same. But at the limit of the tolerance on the tight side I am concerned.
Will be checking them again at 20K, but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced a need for changing the shims for tight measurements. What was your mileage, measurements if possible? Also curious if dealer/mech made you pay or was willing to swap the shims. Thanks for any assistance.
