Haven't checked the valves, but everyone makes it sound like they stay in spec to about 80,000 miles or so
Hmmm, normal riding I get upper 40s. If I flog the living dogshit out of it (and I do mean FLOG at near-constant redline) on sportbike rides I get down in the low-to-mid 30s.

Mine has 84,000 and I haven't adjusted a bleepin' thing.
