Question about 2002 Suzuki VL 800 Volusia
I have a new suzuki VL800 K8 and did not get the valve clearance check as suggested in the owner's handbook at the first service 600 miles. i only had the oil and filter changed.
are the chances that this v-twin engine would have really needed this check or am i right in saying that the valves are 99% likely to not need adjustment so no need to worry about it???
The only time i would worry about getting the clearance on the valves checked is if the bike starts acting up there is no need to break the gasket seal just to check something that is probably alright anyway

The first few hundred miles are key to breaking in a motor. things get hot and contract and then expand and stuff. the valves may be close but if by chance they are not, it can cause a bigger headache down the road and premature ware on your parts. doesnt take long to do it so might as well
