So I'm somewhat mechanically knowledgable, but have never had my valves checked on my bike. They were checked when I bought the bike from the dealership, but here is my question.. Coming into a new season, I'm over the 16K on my bike and want to do or have the valve clearance checked. I have the manual but am afraid of tearing down my top end to do this. Is this something that is seriously hard and I should pay to have just this done, or is it really that hard and I can ask a fellow member to give me a hand one day doing this and perhaps they can show me how to do it for future references? Anyone willing to volunteer as well? I provide beer, food, etc..
