600 mile maintenance on a 17 BOSS C90

Hi guys I’m new here. I just got a 17’ C90 BOSS and love it so far! The dealer I got her from said I’d need a valve adjustment at 600 miles but I’m not seeing that at all in the manual or anywhere online. Anyone got any advice on this?

Am pretty sure that the C90 has hydraulic valves and therefore does not need valve adjustments, unlike the C50 which does need valve adjustments. Am sure that others will chime in .

The dealer may have just had a brain fart. He was probably thinking c50, not c90. Just call them up and confirm that your c90 doesnt need it.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

It shows a valve adjuster arrangement similar to the C50

My service manual on m90 calls for checking the valves at 7k miles. Cant imagine the c90 is too different

When they re-introduced the C90 as a water cooled bike, they used the engine from the M90 which has the mechanical lifters.......
