Hi there.Regarding the valve clearances,the manual says they should be checked at 7500 and 15000miles.My`98 ZX6R has 10800miles on the clock and as i dont have service history with my bike so i assume that they have not been checked.I dont want to check them during whats left of the summer so i`m going to do it during the winter months,do they close or open up during wear?
My DRZ400 valves had closed slightly after 4500 miles so i re-shimmed them but on my hornet after 6000miles they were still in spec,my mates `96 ZX6R has done 46000miles,he has the valves checked every 10000m and they are still in spec but only just.The next time he checks them he says they will need re-shimming.
Obviously each bike is different regarding wear and tear but whats the norm for the valves in these engines?I dont want to damage the engine by doing them later rather than sooner,i`m just looking for someone to put my mind at rests! lol.Also i dont tend to ride it at the redline,i`m not a very fast rider but i dont know how it ws treated previously,the engine seems to run fine with no horrible rumbles/knocks.Two final things,do i need to drain and remove the radiator to take the valve cover off and will the shims from my DRZ fit the ZXR buckets?(bit of a long shot that one).I have a boxful of suzuki DRZ shims.Sorry for the long thread.
