I took my 06 in for the 500 mile check like a good boy thinking it was on the cuff................ Whoa there, 164.99 and all they did was change the oil and smile at me when I picked it up.
19.99 for a clymer and I already had all the tools needed. I haven't messed with my valves yet because all is well at 12K. I think people over react to the valve thing. I put 66,000 miles on a 1978 GS 750 Suzuki, 54,000 on a 83 KZ 1100, and 58,000 on a 83 XV1200 Yamaha Venture not to mention a bunch of SL Honda's and MX Yamaha's and never had a valve shimmed. Yeah those quotes are for real, single self employed and love to ride. It can be done, it took 14 years but I've been around. If you need advise on a good tent I can help you there too.
Now I might be the luckiest SOB alive or the people at Kawasaki might be trying to scare me into going back to those oil changing Millionaires. At any rate I have the means to do a check if I can get myself excited enough to pull the tank, crash bars and God knows what else just to get at those little buggers.
I'll do it fore spring and post my results.
