    20k service

    What's the general consensus about having the valves adjusted, as the manual recommends, at the 20K service ?
    I was planning on having it done, but heard that the valves shouldn't need to be touched until around 50K.
    Thoughts ???

    It certainly wouldn't do any harm to check them, being of bucket and shim design, they are less likely to wear in theory so should remain with tolerance,....be interested to know how many do actually need to be swapped out at that mileage.

    Don't forget the valve/cam timing tightness check too, you need a 0.6Nm 'special tool' to do this job, does the workshop you are taking it to know this??

    Most everyone I know has had adjustment needed at 20k.  I had three tight exhaust and one tight intake.
    I would check them- period.  No real gain in guessing and going more than double the mileage the factory recommends.  Who knows how close they were from the factory anyway.  Within spec could be very close to needing adjustment at brand new.

    In the Netherlands there is this saying: "Meten is weten."
    It means as much as measuring is knowing. You need to replace the spark plugs anyway so it's a small efford to open the cam shaft cover and measure the clearance.
    There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.

    I checked mine not long ago, at 22500, all measurements was within the tollerances.
    But, I was also told that that may be okay, this was by an ex Triumph technician.
