600 mile service

Quick question about the 600 mile service for the F4...does the valves need to be adjusted? I guess my question is whether the 600 mile service requires an MV dealer or not. If someone knows what needs to be done, I would appreciate this as well...

And just in case....since I am looking for an older model (05/06) warranty is no longer an issue I guess...

Thanks.

Ciao, Andreas

It's mostly changing out the oil and oil filter, Safety checks on all the nuts and bolts to make sure everything is staying where it should. I believe the manual states that a valve check is necessary - but in most cases the valves don't need to be adjusted.

I dont think anyone checks the valves at that stage, I know mine weren't checked else the invoice would have been much higher!

I talked to the MV dealer in Mass. USA. and he advised that the first valve adjustment was at the 7500 mile service and not before.. Take it to a shop you trust and he happy. Mine found a couple bolts loose and that was it.. Pete

Yes, its been confirmed by several threads of past that valve checks are at the 7500 mark. Bolts are checked over for proper torque settings at 600 along with the oil and filter change as noted by VTWlkwy.

Yes indeed; the valves are checked as part of the service and adjusted as required

checks and adjustments were done on my 312 at first service.

this was done in the U.K. and the valves did need adjusting cannot remember if it was mostly inlet or outlet but one lot were okay and the other lot almost all needed done, I have the full readings sheet at home but as im sitting offshore I cannot confirm if it was all the inlets or outlets

But

they DID need doing.

They are supposed to be checked and adjusted as necessary. Mostly, it is not necessary so most places don't even check them.

That is what I was told when I brought my '05 in for its first service.
