    It's doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results. Probably applies to posting on forums as well!

    I don't have a video of it, but I adjusted the valves on mine and it was really simple. Need four feeler gauges, an Allen key to move the adjuster, and a wrench to open the adjustment nut. Torque wrench in inch lbs to lock them back again. Was really impressed by the build quality of the bike.

    FYI, I used the R18 stand from Hornig to get the wheel off the ground to find TDC. I plan on keeping the bike for a long time so it will pencil out after a couple of services.

    With how high you rev the bike generally (2-3K), I'm thinking this tank will go 200K no problem. We'll see!

    So the adjustments are like the old Oil-heads with 4 feeler gauges and the same tools.. That brings back some memories..
