Should I do a valve adjustment at 25k? V Star 1100
Hi, my bike is at 24,400km (15,161 miles) and a mechanic told me that the valves should be adjusted at 25,000km.

He said it would cost about $800 CAD and could cause damage if I didn't do it. Thoughts? Should I get them adjusted, how long should it take, and If I don't get them adjusted will it cause damage?

Also wondering how many miles/km I can drive my bike past the recommended adjustment mileage before anything bad might happen.

Thanks

there not hard to adjust, i think the tank has to come off then you may need new orings.i check mine every other year.i do them over the winter. you need a service manual. a shop would probably charge one or two hours labor.$90.00 an hour.
