950sm owners ...can I ask if anyone has had shims done due to valve clearance problems ...and how many miles had your bike done then ?

I have done 15k and the bike is rattling a bit and after checking one of everything ...looks like the valve clearances need work (it was checked at 10000 service ..so guess its about time).

cheers kris

Checked mine tuther day at about 35,000 miles and they were all tight and need doing but before I do it I need to get myself a few tools ie decent torque wrench and a spark plug spanner that fits oh! and a nice sunny day would be good as I dont have a garage or shed :hmh:

Nice to hear matey with 35k still rolling along without doing them. Gives me a chance to get over water pump overhaul-ish before getting in a muddle with bloody valve clearences..... :)

Mine needed adjusting at 8500 mile big service, which was the last time I got them checked until a couple of days ago (2 years later) they were checked at 22500 miles, and they were still spot on. Put new sparks, air filter and battery in. Still running great.
