250 valves
Any one do your own valves on the 250? I just found out they tell you to cheek them at 600 miles. Now I have all ways done my own work on bikes and have done many valve jobs on sport bikes but have never even look at the in side of a v twin. the biggest question I have is how hard is it to get down to adjust the valves? I tried looking it up on you-tube with no luck.

RE: 250 valves
I started to do mine on my 250 a couple years ago, felt frisky. When I got down to them I said, "Nope, no room, this is one for the shop. I'm not sure how the shop does them without loosening the engine.
Never tell someone more than they are willing to hear.

RE: 250 valves
Why did you not have room? Are they on top just under the valve cover?

RE: 250 valves
problem i had doing the valves on my 250 was that you have to pull the tank up, (which means removing the seat) to give a little extra room for rear exhaust, and then the only way to EASILY get to your intake valves is to remove the carburetor. to do so without removing the carb, i actually had to break about an inch off my feeler gauges and use needle nose pliers to slip them between the valve and rocker. and even that was still a pain in the ass. air cleaner and crank case vent filter also have to come off if you want good access to the front intake valves.

i have a 2017 XV250
