Valve Adjustment Frequency between Wee & Vee
I am not real mechanical
so forgive my obvious ignorance.
When I read between the DL1000 (Vee) and DL650 (Wee) forums it appears that the Vee seems to require Valve Adjustments a lot more often than on the Wee.
I am curious as to why. Is it because of the torque and horsepower? Or is there a different design between the Vee and Wee valve arrangements?
Or Is it just my perception of what I read that the DL1000 requires more Valve Adjustments?
My DL650 at approx 49,000 was still dead center in specs when checked a couple months ago.
