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 thought mine were a little noisy so I had the dealer check them during the 600 mile service. No charge.

Yeah after reading these posts I don’t think I’m going to take my bike back to the dealer, I’ll probably use the high performance shop that is doing my pipe/air/controller mods for future service.

I let my dealer do the 600 mile service and was thinking about doing the 4000 mile service myself. I was a mechanic for a good many years so it's no problem. But now I'm thinking I'll let them do all the work on it. I know them and know if anything ever goes wrong with the bike, I will have no problem getting it fixed, no questions asked as they will be the only ones who have ever touched the bike.
