They were about $55 I think from bike bandit but I found them at a better price at; babbittsonline.com
I did the deed myself with my clymer close at hand. Be careful and all will work out well. Interesting that all of a sudden a bunch of people are posting this same problem?
I have had 10 motor cycles and three of which were open class MX bikes in the seventies, never had this happen! I put 170,000 miles on four road bikes and never had this happen!
I posted before about my misgivings with having to keep such a constant watch on the valve clearance on my KLR, I put 67,000 on a 1978 GS 750 Suzuki and never had to shim the valves. What's up with that? Just Lucky?
Planned obsolesce? I don't know. Maybe the shops just don't believe in using loc tight? I don't mind wrenching my rides but what the hell, I don't plan on the triple tree falling off a bike with 11K on it either! Mostly road miles too,not a lot of pounding.
