600m valve clearance checking

FTIW my SM valves were checked at first service 700 miles and needed no adjustment. Mechanic reckons that the later (06) bikes had clearances set slightly wider from the factory meaning no adjustment needed until 4000 miles. Ask your dealer what their actual experiences have been. (If I was doing my own maintenance from new I would change oil and leave the valve checking unil 3-4000 mile range, until the engine is better bed-in)
