Question about 2004 kawasaki ZX-6R
How do you adjust valves on a 2004 zx6r
If there are no adjusting nuts , means there are shims, You will need to measure all clearances, and mark on a note pad, then remove cams, and remove cam buckets on the ones out of adjustment.
Pushing on each valve stem is a small round disc, it will have a number etched on it indicating thickness, get some more shims the sizes required to bring the clearances back in tollerence, usually only one or two sizes thicker or thinner, and put back together.
Turn motor over by hand, and check you have the right clearances
Do not mix up buckets, carefully take note of valve timing before dissassembly, lots of notes, white out pen marks on the cams, perhaps a photo or two.
Valves clearances normally tighten up, so it may be cam chain noise, even if it appears there is still some tension left
