I read that your gsx600 has a screw type valve lash adjustment to simplify maintenance.

But, I think you should get the manual to find out how.

I looked for a free download but it wasn't available.

Good luck on this.

Valves in 2003 ford focus SE 2.3L are loose...how do I fix them?


I doubt if the valves are loose or need adjustment as the engine should have hudraulic tappets which adjust automatically when the engine is running. I suggest that your friend take off the rocker cover and see if anything is out of place. As the engine is 10 years old it is possible that the tappets may be badly worn and not working properly hence the noise

Bike has annoying ticking noise from mostly rear cyl..bike is a 2000 shadow spirit, with 33000 miles, i was told valves needed adjustment at 30,000 miles , along with timing chain adj.. is this correct?


Without being able to stand next to the machine and listen it would be very hard to say what the noise is. Valves are generally easy to adjust and if loud have a high pitched tick sound. Cam chain adjusters generally self adjust and are reasonably quiet. If the automatic adjuster goes bad it will generally make a clatter sound or a loud clack. One thing you have not considered, if the the exhaust gaskets in the head go bad or leak air, they can also produce a loud ticking sound. You often hear this sound in older V8 engines. It sounds like a lifter is bouncing around inside the motor but the sound is caused by a blown gasket between the head and exhaust manifold. If you experience some popping/backfiring during deceleration try replacing your exhaust o-rings in the heads. This may solve both problems. If the problem is internal to the cylinder you may need to change a bad cam chain adjuster. As always start with the cheaper fixes and work your way up. Adjust valves and cam chain tensioner if not self adjusting, replace the exhaust gaskets next, and if that does not fix it, replace the cam chain tensioner. Hope this helps.

Have a 2006 xvs1100 Vstars Classic & just had a service & now have a tapping in it at idle.


Most bikes after so many miles(dont know what that number is for your particular bike)Need a valve adjustment.See how many miles are on bike and find out how many miles you need before you do valve adjustment.the tapping is usally more pronounced when bike idles because of low oil pressure,as long as noise goes away when you rev motor up its just a ajustment.if this noise gets worse then it could be an oil pressure problem.

When do you ajust the valve


If there is noise of valve tapping, if the run in period is over and when you want to set your bike to perform differently.It is specified int he manual of the service chart the specific maintenace schedules.
If the bike is referred for service with record at the serivce outlet then you dont have to worry about when it needs the adjustments.

Valves tapping


you can put some thicker oil in it, or some oil additive,, however this is not recomended, the valves need to be adjusted. They are shims adjustment, and best done by a mechanic.

My 2001 Kia Sportage w/145,000 and has a annoying tapping sound


When the engine warms up it should be fine.
Check that you are using the proper oil. Also check if there is a winter oil recommended. Sometimes winter oil is a bit lighter weight and can help keep the ticking noise down or gone all together.

21,000 is a lot of miles for a motorcycle spark plug. Your valves might need adjusted - I don't know if Kawasaki has solids or hydraulic in this model. Your carbs might be in need of adjustment. When was your last tune up? If you don't remember, it is time for a little TLC for the bike, my friend. Your motorcycle is 9 years old now ... it is time for service.

Kx 125 reed valves


The reed valve assembly should hold solvent withot leaking. Remove for test. Disassemble and clean reeds and reed seat. Perfect seal is very important.

Good luck,

Valve adjustment for 2004 HD sportster XL 883


You have the same model & year as mine - which has Hydraulic lifters as standard. My advice is a) leave 'em alone until b) You've bought a Haynes manual for the Sportster series - which tells you everything you need to know about this bike.
