It's true. Not so much an adjustment but a check. All motorcycles require the check be it a metric motorcycle or HD. With your Yamaha chances are they'll be within the specified tolerance. But better safe than sorry. A manual should be available through the Yamaha dealer.

Can you adjust valve clearance on kia optima 2.0 cdti


Depends on the year and engine. The older engines have hydrolic lifters. The newer engines 06 and up with CVVT have solid lifters so you would have to pull the valve covers and use a feeler gauge to measure clearances and replace the tappets accordingly.

Lifters sound loud on 2011 Ultra Classic


This car has hydraulic lifters( tappets} therefore should not adjustment, you probably have a bad or weak lifter. But, in any case you have to remove the valve covers to make the adjustment. You will see the adjustable bolt on the rocker arm. rotate the engine until the valve is all the way to the top, [no tension on the valve spring] then place a feeler Gage in between the rocker arm and the valve stem, adjust the rocker arm until the feeler Gage is snug but not tight. Do this with each valve. Check the book for the correct Gage to use but I think it is a .018.

Valve chatter in the mornings when it is cranked. but sometimes during the day also. Someone told me to get vaves adjusted. how can i adjust them myself?


Hi Nick, Valve noise will be there all the time, unless the vehicle has hydrolic lifters. if it has then the lifters should be replaced. If it has adjustments you can check the clearance with a feeler gauge, but I believe the sound is more likely to be low oil pressure. this can be caused by the wrong oil filter having been fitted or the oil pump becoming weak. The third reason is wear on the connecting rod or main engine bearings. With mechanical adjustable followers the noise will be steady at all times and not disappear . As you haven't named the vehicle or engine type it's a little difficult to be explicit. Regards Johngee10

Hi i have a ticking noise in my vg30e pathfinder, i believe it may be a hydrolic lifter, what are the adjustment specifications


The lifters on your vehicle would not be adjustable, so depending on mileage, a lifter could need replacing. Listen to this sound to determine if it is at engine speed, or at camshaft speed, which is half as fast. If at engine speed, it could be any number of things. If at camshaft speed, it couild be a broken vavle spring, a sticky valve or a noisy lifter.

Ive been told my car has piston slap is this bad


If that is true, it is bad. I would venture a guess that is not correct however. Your Isuzu is not that old and if it has been properly maintained, (especially oil changes, has not been overheated), then I assure you, this is not the case. How many miles does your vehicle have? What are the symptoms? I assume, some sort of tapping noise? If that is the case, the most common cause would be a hydrolic lifter not pumping up, not piston slap. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful.

I have a yamaha road star xv1600a/at motorcycle it has been setting for about 2 years. I have cleaned the tank,Carb and changed the oil. When it is running the front valves sound like the lifters aren't...


How many mile are on the bike? There is no hydraulic lifers in your bike and if you are hearing a ticking sound then I would have to say it would need a valve ajustment.
