Arrow Ended up being a Trivalve Sunday

So finally got around on checking in on the valves just short of 21K.
Bike is a daily highway commuter and does around 90miles a day.

all intakes were fine, 3 of the exhaust valves were tight. All three exhaust valves had 1.68 shims installed from the factory.

Fellow board member Joey borrowed my kit some weeks ago and did his valves. Not sure what his numbers were but I ran out of 1,6 shims and used 2x 1,6 and 1x 1,55 shims to get the job completed.


Paper shows 1,65 but should read 1,60

Rest of the entire album can be seen here:
