Hi, I've been using the forum for a while ....well the search function anyway!! I've got a standard 8 which I've had for a few years but not really used it for about 18 months so I thought I would give it a service. My query is that when I checked the front cylinder valves one of the inlets was very tight and one of the exhausts was slack to say the least. All the rest are spot on!!
Is this normal. It's done a slightly shameful 4100 miles. I've had it for most of this and was told that the valves were checked at its first service ( by Fowlers ).
If it matters Its white, it has rim tape and my boots are white. There that's out in the open !

I was led to believe that the valves should be checked at the first 500 mile service. I wasn't sure if this had been done. I'm quite glad I did check as the two that are out are about 50% ish out! I know it wouldn't affect the valves but it has been sat for so long I thought I would give it a bit of TLC .
