    How many of you have needed the clearances adjusting or were they still within spec?

    Mine were good at 12K. My F800GS is in the shop today for the 24K. I will report back when I find out if they were in tolerance.

    Where is the box for "I didn't check it because everyone is reporting passing clearances at 12k and I will wait till 24k" ? I want to vote so I can see the results but I don't want to mess up the graph

    I am presently the only one that was out of spec.Actually had the valves checked at 18000mi and all exhaust valves were loose on spec.Had to wait an extra day for the dealer to get more shims in to fix because they had never ran into anybody with my issues.

    Got mine back from the 24k service and all valves were in spec. I have run Full Synthetic since about 8k.
