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 dropped my bike off for the 4,000 mile service and they tried to charge me for a valve adjustment. They didnt even have a maintenance schedule for the Stryker and instead tried using the V Star 1300. I made them pull up the service manual and show them how much they dont know. I think I could probably do everything myself but for me it is kind of piece of mind. I am not sure if I am doing all of the checks correctly.
