Here are the pics from the valve checking operation.
Finally got that &*%$@!! Cover off
Had to buy shims for both bikes.
Finally got around to checking my doo. GreatWhiteNorth was nice enough to help me through the process and supply me with the extra parts. So we get to work and whaddya know....
Turns out the previous owner put the Eagle mike doo and tension spring. All that work for nothing.
So with the spare parts we checked Chris' which turned out to need replacing. We didn't have the Eagle Mike one but the '08+ Doo is alot beafier than the dinky older model ones.
