Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
Soooo, can ya pull the cam and adjust the valves without dropping the motor?

Also, can ya tell me the recommended valve check mileage?

Regards, Paul

Yes, you should be able to. It will be an involved process, but it is possible.

Recommended interval is 10000km (~6000 miles) for inspection. If everything is within spec, put it back together and go another 10000km. If it requires shimming, you have to remove the cam to shim it.

I haven't done it yet, but I'm sure I will be doing it soon.

Service bloke at my local dealer who had done the factory training said to check the valves the tank has to be removed, to remove the tank, the subframe has to be removed. About half a day he said, and the factory schedules them for every 10,000,km (every scheduled service).

That's weird considering the tank is under the seat. Unless he meant the plastics that look like the 'tank'?

It's a great bike, but has its limitations. I love my mine (and am unapologetic about it) but would jump at the chance to get a Terra.

Yes, the tank is "under the seat" and the only way it can be removed is by removing the subframe because it is trapped between the frame on the front and the subframe at the back and the top. The filler is in the normal position, it's all connected.

Affirmative.....

Remove plastic,
Remove subframe,
Remove fuel tank,
Remove air box collector,

In that order, to gain unobstructed access to the valve cover & head.

I tried removing the Collector once, not so long a go, and discovered the tank had it pinned down, and the subframe had that blocked.

It's not something you have to do very often, and probably worthwhile anyway...permitting a thorough flyover inspection.

HF

Ps. Buy a 70 Degree motor Husaberg, if you want to just walk up to it and remove the valve cover directly. Golly....it's a beautiful thang!
