    2014 Valve Clearance

    Seems my owner's manual failed to include that. Time for the 1000 km. service. Can anyone provide?
    As always, appreciated,

    0.002-0.004 intake / 0.004-0.006 exhaust. 0.05-0.09mm in / 0.11-0.15mm ex

    Better check the service manual first, Don't take my word for these spec's! Try this link:

    Weird - your right - the manual doesn't show it. You can take apart the brakes and steering head - but valves ? - Yamaha dealer

    Try this for the pre-2000 model - don't suppose it's changed much - page 38

    On the older models if you pulled off one of the side covers, the right one I think, emission information was there and part of that is the valve adjustments.

    Couple of questions. Did the first oil change and found a pretty good buildup of filings on the filter. Is this normal?

    And looking at the valve covers I can see I can remove them without taking everything apart. And hopefully do the valve adjustment. Anybody done this?

    Yes and yes.

    Don't worry about the metal filings in the filter - perfectly normal for the first 1000 miles - (although if you find as much next time, I'd be concerned). Just change the oil and enjoy the ride ......

    I remove my fuel tank and carb.when i do the valves. Takes a while longer removing everything, but waaay more clearance for my big mitts to get in there.

    Completed my service. Found the spk plug and valve settings on a sticker on the chain side swing arm. Removed the seat and tank as it was easy peasy. The chain had stretched a good amount. Lots of play. Moving the adjusting cams one notch almost seemed to tighten it too far. But after a ride it seems just right.
