VALVE CHECK /ADJUST
on: February 06, 2018, 07:16:31 AM
Just out of curiosity,,,was wondering how many owners bikes have needed any adjustment to valve clearances when dealers have done a service/valve check.
I have had four VFRs including a VFR12

My 5th Gen (98 800) required new shims on every 16k service. My 6th Gen (07 800) rarely needed them and there are lots of owners who have found the same with that model. My 1200 (14) didn't need anything and neither did my 800X (15) so I wonder if, as the designs have been updated, this has caused a significant reduction in the requirement.
98 VFR800 - 130,000 miles (sold)
08 VFR800 - 76,000 miles (sold)
14 VFR1200 - 20,000 miles
15 VFR800X - 44,000 miles (sold)
18 VFR800X - 9,000 miles

thanks Skids,
none of my VFRs have ever had to have valve adjustments,i sorta wondered if the dealers actually bother to check,but having said that i marked the valve cover bolts at my last service on the 12,and they had been off,so thats at reassuring.
i have two mates here in Spain with VFRs,one X.RUNNER(2015) and one VFR 800VTEC,as far as i know,no valve adjustment ever needed on either of them.

Valve adjustment is a lot of work at the vtec engines. I will do it at my 2012 X the next weeks. Then i will see if the valves need any adjustment.
