|Wolfsix||A fantastic tutorial for sure but cannot see the pictures so it has lost huge value to anyone trying to do this. Anyone have a copy with the pictures? Many thanks.|

Photo Bucket Rip off?
So this great work that OregonLan did so long ago is all for not because photobucket decided to hold third party hosting hostage? Is it just me or can nobody else see the pics in the sticky any more? As I understand it, photobucket now charges $400 bucks a year if you want to see the pics that were used and hosted by them.
It looks like OregonLAN's post is probably the best valve adjustment pictorial out there (and I've searched) but I cant see a [email protected]#$%^&*!!! thing! I'm about to do my first valve adjustment on my 2002 Volusia and it sure would've been nice to have all the greats pics with the tutorial. Think it will ever be reposted with pics again/available?

Please make sure...
If you have a 2013 or later C90 (like me), and you attempt to do a valve check/adjustment, make absolutely sure that you CAREFULLY tighten down the valve adjustment access panels. I took my bike out for a ride this morning, only to have engine oil come pouring out and all over me and my bike. Luckily, there is a motorcycle shop close to home (where I was) and I took it there. Since they have to take everything apart to get at the panel I did not tighten down, I'll pay them to do the valve check while they're at it!
I will stick to oil changes and simple stuff like that from now on! Have a good riding season my friends, and please, Ride Safe!

Well, I went ahead and adjusted the rear cylinder valves only. They seem to have been "tight" (a 0.003 feeler would barely fit), so I adjusted them to a "tight" 0.005. I put the bike back together and it runs fine.
As a side benefit, I checked the gap of all four spark plugs that I had installed recently. They were all too tight. The bike actually runs much "smoother" (less vibration) now.
Thanks for the help!
