    There is a download of the 2015 VFR800F Honda Service Manual available:

    link now dead

    I'm not sure how much of the F model is the same as the X, but there is a lot of commonality and I believe the engines are identical.

    I did it numerous times on my old Fi model (98) but the Vtec engine is somewhat different. The procedure is similar though and as long as you have the right tools and can follow the manual, I don't think there are any issues with attempting it.

    I am actually contemplating to do valve clearance by myslelf too...

    You might find the following link helpful
    - video demonstrating valve clearance in older VFR -

    - quite reasonable tech overview of the process http://www.shiny-side-up.net/2016/01/31/how2-vfr-valve-clearance-check-and-adjustment/
     
    The only thing we need is to get the numbers for clearance.
    Does anyone know what is the correct clearance for Inlet and Exhaust for RC60 engine?

    thanks,
    R.

    Is this what you mean? Page 3-7 of the Service Manual....for the 15+ Crossrunner model. If it's the previous model, I'd guess they were the same as the VFR Vtec 02-13 model as it's the same engine.

    OK. Thanks. Crossrunner 15+ is RC80.
    The values are probably the same for Crossrunner 2011-2015 (RC60)...The same values are in the Manual for VFR800F 2014-2015 (RC79)

    Isn't it from VFR800F 2014-2015 Service Manual? I believe it has RC79 engine and wondering if it's the same for RC60...

    To the best of my knowledge, the VFR800F (14+) model engine is the same engine as fitted to the VFR800X (15+) model. No differences that I am aware of.

    If you are unsure, you should try contacting your local Honda dealer to confirm this.
