Two of my intakes were loose and out of spec on my first check at 29,000. Exhausts were all in spec. Several on the YST forum found they had tight exhaust valves on their first check and one other owner recently posted that he had loose intakes also on his first check. Mine sure seems to run a bit better with the intakes properly set.

Valves!

My 4 Exhausts were tight and 1 Intake on the 1st check. I wouldn't skip the 1st one. Maybe skip the 2nd check.

Mine did. All 4 exhausts were tight out of tolerance.

That look says it all. Where am I suppose to sit? Stop by so you can fill in the Colorado spot on your map.

Seems to be very knowledgeable. Easy to communicate with. I also trust your and
Dallara's opinion on the high recommendation of Nick. Won't know for several weeks
but I'm sure I'll be happy.

Nothing "wrong", just more time spent doing actual suspension work than trying to figure out a website.

You want his product/service, you email/call. From there you will wonder why you ever wanted to see a website anyways.

Let him know I say "Hi".

It is on the back burner for right now. I asked him the same question. If he doesn't answer the
phone he will return the call. Very fast on email responses as well.

The Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z Big Thread

Headed to the Stoltec world HQ tomorrow to drop off my forks and discuss additional storage in the warehouse. It seems some guy with 17 motorcycles and more toys than he can count wants to engage Nick's services, and he needs to prepare of the onslaught.......
