well i did my first valve adjustment three days ago and just got to ride her..one i had like 35-40 hrs on it now, i know took forever to do valve adj. but o-well, but i did now notice this thing has more ass then before, the valves were really tight. so i loosened them up roughlyin the middle of the reccomended tollerence. now when running @ mid to high rpm the valves sound like they are rattling a bit is this ok???? will it go away, i just cannot remember what it sounded like brandnew thats all..

well iam a little paranoid, they are in specs but just sounds weird to me, runs great... like a raped ape.. it was unbelievable the diff from tight valves and loose valves, i guess the looser the better for power ,i may open it back up and recheck them to make certian they are ok.. just a pain to take the plastic and tank off to do so..

Yep if you set them to spec they are a tad louder. A month ago I listed to mine a few times compared to other forum members and though holy jesus but after rechecking mine they were dead on in spec. The biggest error I've found from others who called me when I did the write up was them not using MM and using the INCH numbers....
