Okie dokie, It's too cold to ride so I've dove into the cams. Starting at the rear head. There is 12.5k miles on the bike. Just checked the clearance on the rear cams and I got the middle range feeler gauge in no problems on both cams (.152 mm on the intake, .254 mm on the exhaust).
Now the issue, the rear cam chain auto tensioner looks very difficult to remove so I can remove the tension and take the cams out. The front cam chain tensioner looks much easier to access under the airbox.
I'll look around for that VSRI link on how to remove it and see if it is similar to the L2. The ABS stuff is kinda in the way too..
