V2 Valve check/adjust questions
I'm getting ready to do my first valve check/adjust on my 2014 DL1000A. I have experience adjusting shim-under-bucket valves, so I don't expect any problems.
A couple of questions:
Can someone verify for me that the V2 uses 9.48 mm valve shims as were used in the previous DL1000?
Does anyone who has done a valve adjustment on this bike have any hints, warnings or advice about what to watch out for? Ways to make things easier (bodywork/tank removal or anything else)?
I have a shop manual, which looks pretty comprehensive.
