How does an angry sewing machine sound like? Any samples (audio files) available? Just want to know whether my valves are properly adjusted or not. I read about this sound comparison "angry sewing machine = well adjusted valves" - but I'm not sure what exactly this sound is.

Many thanks!

very rapid soft clacking w/ a slight buzz sensation to the engine.

Ever heard someone running a long stich on a sewing machine fast? Make it louder and meaner.

The only way to know is to check them. Better safe than sorry IMHO.

Bingo..........When a dealer says "we listened to your bike-the valves are fine" then it's BS.......the ONLY way to know is to get in there and check.
