Sorry, Not sure what you mean. I know what valves are and all that but are there issues?

Thanks

They need to be checked every now-and-then, but some of us had some "tight" valves at LESS mileage than the required check, so MOST of us advocate checking them and 'opening' up the clearances (IF necessary) to the WIDE end of the clearance-range. IE - .21 to .30 required - ADJUSTED to .30.

Just as Eddie is describing, mine were all tight on my 2008 at about 15,500 miles when I pulled my bike apart. Dialed them all in wide too.
It's a good job to get past and out of the way, then you know where you stand (or sit) with your bike.
