valve clearances

My bike is due a service at 8500 miles I spoke to two dealers today and both gave different answers. One said they don't need checking and the other did can some one shed some light as there is a bit of a difference in the cost of the service. I need this as I want to keep the book stamped up. Thanks.

Manual says 12,000kms or 7,500mls so yes they are due to be checked.

Checking is not a big job, and they will likely all be in spec. Adjusting is when the big $$$ come in to play.

Mine have been in spec every time I checked. 4 times now.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Chris at x bikes did mine and the price was very reasonable, they take the frame from the engine so as to give plenty of clearance to get those cams out. I think you cant beat the experience chris and his crew have in dealing with this job as they are well practiced at it.

12,000 km valve check and plug change too. I'll need an air filter change as well. High maintenance baby.

Wink wtf???????

you geniuses don't have a clue.......

you going to change the drive chain at 7,500mi because the manual says so??????

you're really going to get bent over at 22,400mi

timing chain, chain guides, chain tensioner, front wheel bearings, REAR HUB etc

and another set of plugs too

my '08 Brutale 910R has 32,000mi

I never looked at the valves......

the chain was adjusted 20,000mi ago its in exactly the same spot......it never gets

lubed .....sprayed with WD-40 and wiped down that's it

the front pads EBC HH are ~50% worn......stock Brembo POS go 8,000mi on my Aprilia

RSVR

rears went 2,000mi ago

failures;

burned out 2 low beam bulbs

screw fell ot of the front brake light switch

battery lasted 8 years

best thing you can do for your MV?

reduce the pinch bolt torque to 15lbft/20Nm

I TESTED the torque values that distort the 3810-2RS bearing nobody else did, I

repeated each test 5 times

What if the valves are out of spec.
