Just in case anyone cares.

I just finished adjusting the valves on my '02 with 165000 mile on it. The last time any valves needed adjusting was at about 65000 when only 4 needed a shim change. At 100000 all were in spec.

Now at 165000 all valves were at the tight limit. I replaced all of the shims with one size smaller. The results are 4 intakes at .006, 2 at .007. All exhaust valves are now dead center at .009.

I will probably not go in there again unless I keep this bike past 250000 miles.
