Question about 2005 Suzuki Boulevard S50

1 Answer

Valves, plugs, etc.

I have about 8K on the odometer (I bought it new); Should I be thinking about getting the valves adjusted? I seem to be hearing a faint knocking sound.

They are not likely to need adjustment yet but they should be checked as part of your service. My bike suggests every 6000 miles (not a Suzuki). Your dealer can tell you the correct service interval for them over the telephone. A service manual is very handy for this information, even if you don't do the work yourself.

I'm looking for the Toyota corrola 1.6 4AF engine valve clearance


will need a micrometer, valve clearance adjustment tool set for shimmed lifters,small magnetic arm, appropriate shim selecting charts (manufacturer will have this if you can get the nec. measurements).
Measure thickness of shims removed (using micrometer) and use this formula where T=Thickness of old shim; A=Valve clearance measured; N=Thickness of new shim required.
Intake valves: N = T + (A - 0.02 mm (0.008 in.)) Exh. valves: N = T + (A - 0.25 mm (0.010 in.))
Then you need to find shims as close as possible to the calculated values.
Valve clearances (cold) are as follows: Intake0.15 - 0.25 mm (0.006 - 0.010 in.) Exhaust0.20 - 0.30 mm (0.008 - 0.012 in.)
Note, if you are not familiar with precision measuring using a micrometer, this may be better left to a trained tech. These are high revving little power plants and you don't want a problem at 8K rpm.

My bike lost power but still idles good I think the valves need adjusted what are the specs


The valves having too large a gap will slightly affect power but not dramatically. Good idle but less power under load usually means poor spark for firing so check out your spark plug for a nice bright purple spark first. If the valves need adjusting you can really hear them ticking, like an old school VW bug
Valve gap is usually .002-.004 for intake valves and .004-.006" for exhaust

I just bought a 93 prelude with the 2.3l vtec the guy said that the engine was just rebuilt it has the dohc engine the valves are clicking he told me to run the car so the valves will seat??? then he...


not really. The engine uses hydraulic lash adjusters, so there is nothing for him to adjust. If the engine has been run at all, the valves should be seated. If not, maybe the guides were over-knurled. Can't really tell why they are clicking. Can he provide specifics of what was done to the engine? Does it have new lash adjusters? Were the guides knurled or what was done with the guides? What was done to the valves? Are the springs new? Are the camshafts new? etc. etc.

Is valve adjustments needed on 2000 camry V6 I am hearing noises that seems like coming from under valve cover, you can hear the noise from inside car,but not from outside of car. I was told this engine...


The valve adjustment usually isnt done unless there is valve noise. If you think its valve noise, have the dealer check it or a shop that does a LOT of Toyota work. Special tools and shims are needed to adjust the valves. Its a LOT of work and will not be cheap. You will want to replace the spark plugs at the same time.

New Bike Serviced Required??


Sounds about right. Most bilkes need the valves adjusted every 3-4000 miles. 3 hours also sounds right and you can check around to get a better hourly shop rate.

This engine utilizes shims to set proper clearances, you will need a micrometer, valve clearance adjustment tool set for shimmed lifters,small magnetic arm, appropriate shim selecting charts (manufacturer will have this if you can get the nec. measurements).
Measure thickness of shims removed (using micrometer) and use this formula where T=Thickness of old shim; A=Valve clearance measured; N=Thickness of new shim required.
