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 spoke with the service guy at Yamaha Saturday about my 600 mile tune up and he said that he wanted to check the valves but it was included in the $200 price.
The owner's manual even says the bike doesn't need valve check until 16k miles. But if you want to help our economy and spend $200 on a oil change and bolt tightening, by all means ;)
