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.

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.
