4 valve adjustments up to 31,000 where I set them to the loose end of the spec. 51,000 miles on the bike now so time to do it again. You can check the clearance from the left side without taking the tank off but if changing shims is needed is better with it off. My first rear IRC tire went 15,000 miles. The second rear went 16,000. When I also changed the front front at 31,000 miles to the Michelin Street take offs from my R3. The third rear is done now after 20,000 miles. The front Mich feels choppy but has tread left so I will ride that a bit longer. I changed the gearing at 4,000 miles and the same sprokets are still on. The third chain I put on was a DID Gold at 31,000 and it is still good. And I ride in winter through salty roads. These small displacement motorcycles are very cheap to put miles on. This last tank was 242.7 miles/ 2.398 gallons US = 101.2 mpg. Previous tank was 104.9 mpgUS, 44.6km/ L, 2.24L/ 100km.
