That's good to note about getting all the oil bled out of the follower or lifters. I have 7,000 more miles before I have to deal with a valve adjustment on the Vee.
The last shim type valve adjustment was on my Honda Blackbird. That wasn't to bad, I only had one head to deal with and only 3 exhaust valves were tight.
I just had to loosen the cam chain tensioner and move the cams out of the way a little bit. That motor had 76,000 miles at that time. I just sold it with 78,000 miles and it was still running like a swiss watch.
