Question about 1985 Yamaha FJ 1100
I have a XJ1200cc yamaha engine in a Legend racecar. I was told that the valves must be reset after racing it the firt couple times. I have three races on the new engine and I need to know how to set the valve lash before I race again. Any help & instruction you can provide will be greatlly appriciated. Thanks, 37legend coupe
You will need a variety of shims, and the valve bucket holder tool to adjust the valves, but i find it hard to believe that you would need anything at this point. Just pop off the valve cover and check the clearances with your feeler gauge. I'd bet they are fine, unless theres a valve seat issue-
