i think you will find that like the 1200 there is no valve adjustment..well there is but not in the normal locknut screw adjustment that we are all familiar with,,they are a shimmed "no lash"hydraulic system,,you can buy the shims from your local honda dealer but they only come in 1mm steps i took 4 new ones to an engineer and got them taken down to 1/2 mm thickness this made a big difference,they are quite easy to do just take some time to get right,but once done they should do 50-60000km before needing looking at again..hope this helps

Bastards! Valves will only get tighter on our bikes so there is that. If you are concerned call another honda shop 1-800 and get service department to listen to you

motor has to be turned over counter clock wise to top dead center T or I should show up in the inspection hole. I bought one had a horrible rattle and I thought it was a major problem but turned out to be loose valve adjustment. When turning the motor counter clockwise don`t back up if you go too far just go around again. I set mine to 3 thousandths intake and 4 thousandths exhaust
