    Looking to get a valve clearance inspection and a starter valve sync. Any recommendations?

    I’ve done a clearance on my old GS500 but i don’t feel like messing with the V4. The parallel twin was enough of a pain:wheelie:

    Based on my own personal experience over here in South Orange County, CA, I would say avoid ANY Honda dealer.

    Also, you are wise to not attempt it unless you are mechanically inclined and have done camshaft removal and replacement. To do the VFR valves you must remove the camshafts FIRST, install VTEC Lifter Stopper, replace the camshaft, then inspect the valves. And if you have to adjust the valves, you must remove camshaft again. The bucket IS the shim and each one is $34 from Honda. So you would have to order and your bike will have to stay "open" until you get the part. It's not difficult, it's just time consuming.

    OTOH, synchronizing the Starter Valves are really easy to do. It requires lifting the tank and removing the whole air box.
