spec

Can anybody tell me what the recommended clearance is for both intake and exhaust valves (please specify metric or not!) and what the tolerance is for both?

I plan on doing a valve check this weekend. (I don't normally let mouth breathing wrench monkey's near my stuff so I do it myself).
.006 inches intake, .011 inches exhaust. You can sneak the valve cover out the front by unhooking the rubber radiator hangers. No need to remove the tank. If you have to adjust, you will need the side fairings off.

shim selection

Thanks Sendler. What is the tolerance to be considered outside of spec? .003 inches?
I think the limit is specified as .002" inches but it would mainly depend on what increments the shims are available in. If they are only available every .005" then the limit will be .0025". Mine were .006, .006, .010, .009, so I just left them alone. That was at 700 miles. I now have 3600 miles so should think about checking them again since I left them tight last time.
