I am about to check my valves on my 2007 DL650 ABS (e-33).

The service manual says to rotate the crankshaft in the normal running dirrection to set a cylinder at top dead center. From the looks of how the ratchet wrench is set in the picture in my manual, I assume that would be clockwise. Can someone confirm this for me please?

It's counterclockwise, for sure.

Thanks Lefty, I should have come up with that on my own. Getting too old I guess. And thank you Greywolf. It goes the same way the chain turns. Oh my forehead and right palm are getting sore now.:headbang:

Valve Adjustment

Reply to Blacklab. Thank you Barry for the great write up and the great pictures. I did the valve check yesterday morning and everything is in limits. All the valves on the timing chain side seem tighter than the other ones. Three of these are near the tight limit, but the .10mm or .20mm guage, depending on intake or exhaust, cleared without any trouble. The next thicker guage did not seem to want go. I think I will leave it alone and put things back together. The gaskets look good and I will reuse them. Thanks again for the excellent write up.
