I get confused on this at times, here is the specs out of the book

Intake - 0.09-0.13mm (0.0035-0.0051 in.)
Exhaust - 0.16-0.20mm (0.0063-0.0079 in.)

The feeler guages we purchase in the US are marked in inches, and mm, (metric).
The feeler guages you purchased in the UK are marked in Imp. inch, and mm.
The manuals that we get in the US use inches and mm, your manuals are marked in mm, but I don't know if you have inches, or imp inch. Common to both of us is mm, so, use the mm feeler gauge in the set.

To be comtinued.....

Continued.....


Using the intake valve, the factory lists mm, (metric) followed by US inches in parentheses. Let's not use the inches, and use mm as a example.

The intake valve can be adjusted tight, loose, or somewhere in between. 0.09mm is tight, 0.13mm is loose. 0.10mm - 0.12mm is in between. For a beginner, lets adjust the valves to right in the middle of tight and loose, or 0.11mm. Find the guage that reads 0.11mm, don't worry about the other numbers on the guage, it won't be used.

Take the 0.11 guage, and slip between the intake valve and rocker. If it slides in and out with slight resistance, you're good. If it slides in real easy, or not at all adjustment may be necessary.

If you get confused, just remove the mm guages you use for valves from the pack, and bolt or zip tie them together. You'll always know the right ones to use. Include the size (s) for your spark plug to check the gap..

I think what had me confused was the Imp. Measurements he was referring to, I didn't catch that. Thanks for the clarification DEZ!

Thanks for the help and info really appreciate it. What's got me is none of the gauges have 0.09mm, 0.11mm or 0.13mm on them!

Just use the 0.10mm or 0.12mm. Any of them are within tolerance. The tolerance is from 0.09mm to 0.13mm, so, anywhere between those are good.

Wow....95,000 Views . I just got another Raptor 700R last Saturday... 10 years after I bought my first one in 2007 and did this write up!

Awesome to be back and see this is still used from time to time!
