    With a new bike, When I adjust the valves for the first time, I set the covers on the bench and use a stamping tool that stamps

    1/8 inch numbers to put the valve clearance data inside the cover.

    That way no matter which bike I am working on I have the data right there when I need it.

    It can be scratched in too but I prefer the stamped numbers.

    Definately a smart move. Especially for those that do a lot of traveling on their bike. Remember though, those caps are cast so don't hit 'em too hard.

    I use an electric pencil.

    Whenever I think of it or have the time I also put my name or initials inside everything I take apart, to I.D. my stuff in the event of theft recovery.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.
