Valve Adjustment

Has anyone here had the valve adjustment or done one? I questioned the Yam dealer here and they said that they had never done an adjstment on the Stryker. The 1300 engine yes but not on a Stryker. This may not be a big deal but I cringe everytime I have to take any vehicle in for service. That is why I do most of my own work. We've all been ripped-off before but it's not the money that concerns me...it's the quality of the work. BTW, The estimate was 3 hours at $75/hr.

I believe they are just tappets so most of the time is just getting to them? Should be an easy adj?
Checking the valves is allways a good idea, if you can do it yourself! Just for piece of mind. It's really hard to fork over that kinda money for a basic service, look into the manuals its really not that hard?
