    Hello, I have a 2013 ktm 500 exc and I have been doing all the service on my bike myself. My questions is should the bike be warm up a little to get proper valve shim clearance check? I have checked the valves with the bike cold and I cant get the feelers under the rocker arm and above the valve shim. However, when the bike is a little warmed up it read within spec when i measure.
