Valve adjustment pics

So the bike turned over 600 miles finally. The dealer wanted $180.00 to adjust valves, check over & change oil. I checked valve clearances per service manual procedures. The manual left out r&r of the evap. canister on the left side which is in the way. Several bolts had lock tight on the threads, and several different bolts with similar, but different dimensions, so be wary. Pay attention to side panel & gas tank extensions, as the slide, pop in , and screw. The manual was good about how to remove & install the panels with the pull and slide notes for each panel. The valves were within min/max specs, so no adjustment was made only recorded to compare to next adjustment time. It was tricky putting the valve cover and gasket (reusable rubber) on at the same time, so care needed. Since all side panels were off, it's a good time to clean and wax individually.

The service manual states to check valve clearances at 600 mile. They are checked with feeler gages between valve stem, and rocker arm stud.

The specs are .05 to .10 mm intake, .17 to .22 mm exhaust. Mine was .055 intake, .20 ex. No adjustment required.

i am thinking this.... the mechanics here for expercience told me than the valves doesnt need adjust in the first service, untill you listen somthing extrange, (tic tic tic),

i thing maye they need to review the gap almost....for know how are the valves gap.

The gasket is reusable? Or did you acquire one that is? I was getting ready to do my valve check but we missed that you had to take the cylinder cover off (you don't on my husband's bike) so we backed out not sure how to procede.
