I'm hoping to put mine off until the end of the summer season... 10kish mile mark. Will do myself. Overdue for a check! I bet one or more are tight. Engine is quiet and runs well...

I just do mine myself the jpaige way. I ran an engine 120,000 miles doing it this way, and I'm at about 60,000 on the second engine in this bike. Still doing fine.

Nice..... sounds like you're doing things right. That's what I would do if I were to to it myself but I just can't get myself to do it. I believe that would be a ton of frustration involved.

[SIZE="a"]Well, my c50 has 12,500 miles on it and I've brought it in twice in 13 years to have the valves checked. Both times none of the valves needed any adjustment. The mechanic told me that they rarely have to adjust the valves on c50s.[/SIZE]
