Why don't we do it in my garage in DC? You might want to get an air filter since we will be in that area. You should get some spark plugs. A couple of head gaskets too, just in case. I also replace my radiator fluid, bring some of that too. I will post up when I get the shim kit, we can schedule a date at that point. I have a Twin Max for throttle body synching. I have, I believe, all the tools needed to do the job but having duplicates would not be a bad thing. This would include torque wrenches, sockets, etc. I have some supplies like loctite, hand soap, gloves and rags but you might want to bring what you have. We could do my bike first for practice and because the engine will be cold. We could then do something of an assembly line to knock them all out. I have done this twice before but do not consider myself an expert at this. Here is some stuff to look at to help figure out what to do: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=195248 http://blacklabadventures.com/2012/02/18/2007-dl-650-valve-check-and-adjustment/ http://perljam.net/motorcycle/dl650/valve-adjustment/ http://www.vstrom.info/forum/forum_files/VStrom650ThrottleBody.pdf With all this information and the collective geniuses that we is, what could possibly go wrong?
