Complicated and somewhat tedious procedure; try this link to the Volusia Rider's forum:

I use the "jpaige" method referred to in this excellent tutorial; I simply could not get the feeler gauge into a position that I was confident with. Good luck!

Fixing the valves setting on a 125cc clipic radar motor cycle

We would check to see if this is a Honda clone or copy 125cc engine. If so use those steps and specs but only if you can not get a manual which seems unlikely.
All valve adjustments are similar on overhead valve four stroke engines. I have not bothered to look but have to ask if you did a web search for a video showing how?
I am assuming this is a four cycle engine and not a two cycle engine. Two cycle engines do not use valves. Two strikes use ports and reed valves that you can not adjust.
Next time add a good up close pic of the engine. Especially the top end.

How do I adjust ZZR1400 valve clearence

The valve lash adjustments on these bikes are done with shims on a COLD engine.
Intake valves 0.15-0.20
Exhaust valves 0.22-.0.27
Check the specs on your emissions sticker to confirm...California bikes are subject to change.
If you are not familiar with timing marks and adjustment procedures, i recommend you buy the manual and follow the steps outlined, the illustrations are also a big help.
Good luck, i hope this helps.

Well we tried adjusting the valves and then it will start and make a werid noise and then will be about to shut off and it doesnt sound right plezz can you help me? its a 1997 gmc 5.7 1500

With the Engine in the number 1 firing position, adjust the exhaust valves for cylinders number 1, 3, 4, and 8 and the intake valves for cylinders number 1, 2, 5, and 7.
Turn the valve rocker arm nut counter clockwise until the valve lash is felt in the valve pushrod.
Turn the rocker arm nut clockwise until all of the valve lash is removed (zero valve lash).
Zero valve lash can be felt by moving the valve pushrod up and down between your thumb and forefinger until there is no more up and down movement of the valve pushrod.
When all the valve lash is removed, then turn the valve rocker arm nut clockwise 1 additional turn (360 degrees).

With the engine in the number 6 firing position, adjust the exhaust valves for cylinders number 2, 5, 6, and 7 and the intake valves for cylinders number 3, 4, 6, and 8.

Follow the same steps as above.

I replaced my fluid master and now it will not stop filling in the tank.

Try lifting the float part of the valve. If the water stops filling, reset the float level lower.
If water does not stop when lifting the float, flush out the valve according to the instructions - steps 12 - 15.

12. IMPORTANT: Always clear sand and rust from system. Make sure

water supply is shut off. Remove valve TOP by lifting arm and rotating

top and arm 1/8 turn counterclockwise, pressing down slightly on cap.

13. While holding a container over the uncapped VALVE to prevent

splashing, turn water supply on and off a few times. Leave water

supply off.

14. Replace TOP by engaging lugs and rotating 1/8 turn clockwise. MAKE



15. Turn on water supply. Adjust water to desired level by squeezing water

level adjustment clip and moving FLOAT CUP up or down along stainless
steel link. Check for leaks, then check for proper flush.

If valve continues to run:


• There may be debris at seal - repeat Steps 12-15.

• The seal inside the valve top may be damaged -replace with genuine
Fluidmaster 242 seal.

17hp water cooled twin v engine, what are the valve adjustments and whar are the steps in adjusting them

Hi valve clearence settings are .004 thou, You need to have the engine on top dead centre and then loosen the locking nuts and adjust accordingly whilst sliding a feelr gauge in between the top of the valve stem and the rocker arm. But dont forget to retighten the locking nut up afterwards.

How to do a valve adjustment on a 2001 TRIUMPH SPRINT ST? Steps, helpful tips and specs would all be helpful- Thanks a lot!

I assume you are using the Triumph issued tool. Do you have a Service Manual. It has a picture of the tool and a note: The tool mounting plate is marked 'IN' & 'EX' denoting which are the inlet and exhaust sides of the tool. Always ensure that the tool assembly instructions are closely followed to ensure correct tool operation.

Hold the legs firmly against the mounting plate and tighten the leg to mounting plate fixings to 7Nm. Turn the engine over until the camshaft lobes for the valves to be adjusted point directly away from the valves. As the valves begin to close, the tool legs will prevent the valves from rising, allowing the shims to be removed using a soft faced lever and a magnet. (the shim is often a tight fit in the tappet). Replace new shim, coated with engine oil on both sides. Turn the engine over until the camshaft fully opens the valves being adjusted. Remove the tool with the valve fully open. Check the shim has seated correctly and adjust, if necessary, before proceeding.
Note: The tool is designed to allow adjustment of 2 pairs of valves without moving the mounting plate. This is achieved by moving the tool legs to a new location once one pair has been adjusted.
Repeat the procedure until all valves have been adjusted.
You'll need a shim selection chart to make things simple.
Place the tool with the IN pointed to the Intake Valves & EX pointed to the Exhaust valves. Does that help?

I need the valve adjustments for a honda 1100 goldwing

i think you will find that like the 1200 there is no valve adjustment..well there is but not in the normal locknut screw adjustment that we are all familiar with,,they are a shimmed "no lash"hydraulic system,,you can buy the shims from your local honda dealer but they only come in 1mm steps i took 4 new ones to an engineer and got them taken down to 1/2 mm thickness this made a big difference,they are quite easy to do just take some time to get right,but once done they should do 50-60000km before needing looking at again..hope this helps

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.
