Question about 2005 Suzuki Boulevard C50
I've got an 06 C50. It IS a very tight work space to adjust the valves, especially the rear intake valves. To give yourself a little more working room on the rear valves, move the chrome tube (located directly above the rear covers) to the side by removing the 2 bolts that connect it to the back of the rear jug.
Remove all of the valve cover nuts and bolts BEFORE you remove the covers and BEFORE you remove the spark plugs. This prevents the potential to loose them down in the engine, which is a whole other problem.
The VoluisaRiders site has A LOT of information on how to do this, someone a few years ago created a how-to for this task with pics and is virtually step by step. That is what I use (done it 3 times so far). Also there is a method for setting the valves without using feeler gauges, making the task MUCH easier, but that is a personal preferance,
I would give it a 3 out of 5 wrenches in difficulty, so make sure you know what you're getting into before beginning.
