Okay, thanks. I'll take a look and see what I can dig up. In the past, I've tried to save all the shims and stash 'em away when scrapping out a cylinder head or motor. I scrapped out a couple CB900C heads last summer.I have a drawer full of big shims. I'll measure them up to make sure they're the 29's.

Ya, those can be a bear sometimes. Been there, done that. Makes ya really appreciate a razor blade and a small right angle die grinder with a 2" red scotch-lok cookie disc for gettin' that nasty gasket off. Takes about 5 minutes that way.

well, i did get off my ass and do the valve check...and adjust today.

turns out, 3 out of 4 were out of spec. both intakes were @ .002... spec for intake is .004-.008

one exh was @ .004 and the other @.005...spec for exh is .005-.010..

so, i knew i was in for a tear down, got everything apart and shims removed and while looking for my digital micrometer.....found these.



forgot all about these, several shims for old kz 900/1000 engines, guess what, they are same size.

my dog on me again, i know what she is saying here... bout time u got your human ass off that couch and got on these valves, they were TIGHT!!



got valve cover off, along with cam caps...i chose not to remove cams, or timing chain, looked to me like i could get shims out without having to retime engine.



once u get buckets spun around where gap is facing towards you, pry shim off bucket with small screwdriver...and snatch it out with tweezers...or magnet.

u can see gap here..



got hold of shim here..



got em all changed, and all are on loose side, with 2 on very loose side, one actually out of spec @.0115 (exh should be no more than .010)...but was as close as i could get...and figured as valve seats wear...clearance will tighten up and it should come in...i hope.

got er all back together, and she fired right up... .

she is clattering a bit, but i think it is better than being to tight, and am hoping it gets quieter as seats wear.

so, i got some spare shims if you guys need em at the tech day.

A noisy valve is a happy valve. Good looking dog, smart too!

Nice write up Tpar.

I've got it easy with the DR. The valve adjustment is a screw/locknut ordeal.

I may end up having something to work on if I pick up another bike before the tech day. I'll have to wait and see. I could always change the brake fluid and fork oil in the DR, which I do every year, if I want something to do.

When were you guys thinking about doing this?

I'd like to see something in the next couple weeks or so just to get everyones ride ready for spring.

My only dilema is deciding what bike needs work more

The DRZ won't even start(not sure what the heck is going on there yet)

And the KLR needs a new fork seal (I'll do both though) probably should check valves and I think there is a way to check the "Doo" I don't know much about the KLR yet.


The question is where are we doing this. A heated garage would be nice.

Do you think it's because of the cold? Are the valves within spec?

this weekend is no good for me, my mom is having a mastectomy wed. i told her i would spend weekend with her at her place @ ft. ritner.

any weekend after that, i should be good.

my doo is done, swingarm greased, valves done...wheel bearings still feel good. i could upgrade suspension, but i am in no hurry for that yet.

guess i will just show up to point fingers and laugh at everyone. but i can bring extra shims, micrometer and whatnot.

paul, if we have it at your place, you may want to park that sweet 57chevy outside...don't want some bonehead to drop their bike against it.

i will not park my bike anywhere close to it....i promise.

I am ordering my Doo supplies from EagleMike today, so I am guessing they might not make it by this weekend either.

The next weekend is the super bowl, so that is out.

Feburary 8th, is the pro-bowl, but that I can miss. Seems far enough ahead so that if anyone needs to order anything it should be here by then.

Where are you located Backmarker?
