Really thanks for the Input Steve @7200 miles should i even be worried about cam tensioner wear / flat spots?
or at that mileage consider maybe checking and adjusting valves?

Union and a CITY job at that. Fuck yeah bitches.

Sitting here eating my Cheerios and waiting for the phone to ring.

At 7200 miles you don't have to worry about the cam chain tensioner but your way late on checking the valves. I just serviced a kid here at work 2008 XRL with 8K on it and he was complaining that the bike kept dying and took repeated starts. No wonder. The left exhaust valve had ZERO clearance. He came over to pick it up yesterday and I had him start it in the garage. Full choke and hit the Go button. Fired right up and setteled down to a nice idle with no choke after 10-15 seconds. It never did this before he exclaimed!!
