I have a 06 500 S that is coming up on the 20 hour mark. The first oil change and the valve adjustment will be due. From the postings on this board it doesn't look to difficult adjust the valves. Will this cause troubles with my warranty if I do it myself? I would really like to seal the recoil starter but am curious about whether this will cause me warranty heartache also?

The recoil block off shouldn't affect your warranty, mine was actually suggested by the shop foreman in Marshall when I bought one a couple of years ago! And adjusting your valves will not void your warranty either, as long as you don't break something doing it. I will throw this for you though, when you take off your recoil starter, it makes it harder to do your valves! So at least leave it on until you do those!

he may assume you were going to take off the entire recoil starter....if that was the case it would be hard to adjust the valves cause you use the pull starter to move the valves
