Valves are actuated only recently at Moto Guzzi by an overhead camshaft. Shim under bucket design precludes consumer adjustment due to shim kits price/availability. But it can be done! Not sure what the interval is, usually needs it between 12k miles, and 20k miles. If you hear noticeable tapping that doesn't quiet after warmup, it is time to check clearances. Good Luck, and nice bike, by the way. TT

Top end engine noise-valve train?


You may be coming up on the maintenance interval for a new Belt, but I would imagine that this vehicle has VVT, variable valve timing, and that you may need an adjustment on that as well.
Valve noise is most likely what you are hearing.

I have sixty-five thousand mile on my CRV 2004. Should I get the plugs replaced, and have the valve adjusted?


valve adjustments are recommended every 60 to 70 K miles. the plugs are also a good idea at this interval as a maintenance item along with a fuel filter.

Spa check valve


Your pool and spa share a filter and/or a heater? Not the best arrangement ... but it is the arrangement you have. Evidenetly, you do have a check valve that is not checking. Are you sure that is where the water is going and not out the waste?

If you replace the check valve - be sure you know which way the water is flowing. Check with your pool supply to see if this valve can be used in the vertical position.

Motor seems noisy at 15K miles. Should the valves be adjusted? What are the intervals between valve adjustments on this model?


Yes valve adjustment is a requirement. You need a good repair manual, unfortunately I do not have one for your model, but your local Triumph Dealership should be able to answer your question about the intervals. I thought it was only done when required, but I am not an expert on Triumphs.

What parts do I need to replace my spark plugs?


Generally, the valve cover gasket, PCV valve, vacuum lines, exhaust manifold gaskets, and injector seals. These are all things that, universally, should be inspected or replaced at large intervals (60,000 - 70,000) as a matter of preventative maintenance.
