    24000 mile service

    I've got my 2017 Crossrunner booked in for a 24k service for which part of the service is a valve clearance check.  Having spoken to the garage I am told that as I am not riding many miles a year - about 3k currently - there is probably no need to have them checked.

    A couple of questions then.

    Should I get the valves looked at, at 24k?
    If I don't, at what mileage should I get them looked at?

    I await your thoughts.

    Cheers

    Many thanks for the information.

    From memory, I  am sure the owners manual and Service manual quote different mileages.

    Thanks

    Entirely your choice, which I know doesn't help. Honda extended the interval from 16k miles to 24k miles with the 2018 model but there were no changes to the engine afaik so it's down to the engine not needing them checked so often.
    98 VFR800 - 130,000 miles, 08 VFR800 - 76,000 miles, 15 VFR800X - 44,000 miles (all sold)
    14 VFR1200 - 24,000 miles
    18 VFR800X - 30,000 miles
    01 VFR800 Fi-1 - 9000 miles
