The valve clearances are the same as the GL 500,as I recall they are in .002" - .004", ex .003" - .006". The pilot air technically needs to be adjusted with the motor running. You want to start at 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 turns out.

A service manual is a valuable tool with an aging bike. I suggest the dealer/mfr. or Clymer books. In the meantime, go to the library reference section.

My YZ250F loses all its power after it warms up.


Check the valve clearances, when the bike warms up the valve clearance will get tighter and a valve will not be closing properly.

Clearance for inlet and exhaust valve adjustment


Hi there,

Not sure about clearance levels, but can tell you there is no English manual for the XJR 400 - only Japanese. Try the XJR owners club. It's full of troubleshooting questions answered in the forums.

Hope this helped

Valve clearances for a tw125


I have solved the problem myself by buying a workshop manual for the bike. A waste of money as the bike will be sold as soon as the problems are sorted. I only needed the valve clearances for it. Thanks for not helping at all.
