Just checked the clearances on my 2012 R1200RT hexhead with 18K miles and all valve clearances are within spec. However I am curious about what change to expect over time as the engine wears.
For those of you who have adjusted your hexhead valves many times I would be interested to hear if valve clearances generally increase or decrease over time, or if there is no pattern. Thanks.

PS I would also like to hear about a metric feeler gauge set with the right fine increments to do this job properly. Mine did not seem to have the right increments per blade, and combining them works poorly. Thx.
