Your valves should have been adjusted at the initial break-in which is 100 miles or 20 hours, whichever comes first. More than half of the valve adjustments I do the valves are out of spec. Your owners manual has a maintanence schedule in it. Look at it so you know what you should be doing to your atv to keep it running its best.
thanks so i deff. should take it in and get the valves adjusted? thanks and will i DAMAGE the motor or just not run properly if i ride it like it is.
