Hi everyone,

My scoot has now done 17000 miles and i would like to get the valve clearance checked.

Any ideas what this task would cost to get done?

My take-----if you ride a lot and trade often, just ride it until trade time. Let next worry about it.

I hate shims---I figure more difficult for guy at home-----As experiment, Suzuki GS500E---Checked valve clearances at home at 1,200 miles=ok but easier check than plastic scooter. Then as it was cheap bike with warranty----just rode it---15 months later and 64,000 miles, all ok as I traded it in. No valve/cam related problems.

SilverWing, after 30,000 miles I might want to check.

My Citroen BX 2000 no turbo diesel, shims, went over 400,000 km with no check---had servied in Italy (great) Germany (parts) changers and most often in Bitche France (great and skilled in the shop). Never valve/cam problem.....or anybody eager to check as pain in butt.

hi jamie i was quoted £440 for a valve clearance check at my local scooter dealer i politely told them to something off.my swing has now 68500 on the clock and running fine.little signs of valve checks are engine becoming noiser or if they tighten the bike will become harder to start and not peform as well as normal.i will check mine at 100000miles as i dont want to waste my time i would rather be riding.good luck with what ever you do.
