if they are out of spec you should.. don't forget to grease up the chassis too..

150 for the valves isn't too bad either. but you can do it yourself..

Adjusting the valves is super easy and fast as long as you have the right size gauge. The rappy's are pretty easy to work on.

ok gang i just did my 1st oil change on anything with a motor i bought new crush washers for the case bolt so all went on smooth. I had busted the small radiator hose last weekend so i fixed it and filled the radiator with water just to make sure the hose was on right. So i drained the water from the radiator and added 50/50 mix. i changed the oil filter as well as gave it a good detailing. I have a k&N air filter do i just take it off and run water on it?

yeah that's what i said with a foam filter, 2nd filter over that and the lid on =)

now i have two sets of foam filters so i can have one brand new condition before each ride AND i have a ehs lid to keep dirt out.

i won't ever ride without putting a "like new" foam filter on there.... a k&n would be out of the question where we ride
