Adjusted my valves last night..

Good thing I did! I found that I had minimal to 0 lash on the exhaust valve.
Hardest part of the entire job is getting a feeler guage under the rocker to get an accurate setting.
The quad idled previous just a little rougher than my friends foreman and since I already had 14 hrs on it and was planning to ride possibly a couple hundred miles over the weekend down in Ky, it was time to check/adjust them plus change the oil. Bike idles so much smoother now with obviously better throttle response.

My valves were too tight at the first service too.Did you set them to the specified .006" ? that's what I did and it is really noisey at this setting.
They are set at .006. They didn't sound to noisey but I didn't run it enough to fully warm up and expand a little. I'll find out this weekend after riding. Noise is listening to 16 valves clattering away with .022 lash with open exhaust! But it's a good noise!
