Valve Clerarances for Stock KLX 110

Does anyone know the correct valve clearances for a 2008 Kawasaki KLX 110?

My net search has turned up multiple answers. Right now I've got them set at .003 for intake and .004 for exhaust. Seems to run fine, but I'd like to be sure.

I've also removed the choke from the carb body to add some air. It seems to be running pretty good, but I need to get it out to the track. I'm still trying to heal up though from a broken rib in the first Katy TMGP race this year. Seems the older I get, the longer it takes to heal.

you got it right

since you removed the choke if you havent done it you might wanna change the jetting to a 85 main with a 40 pilot

I fill you on the ribs, I cracked a couple last katy round within the first 30min of the endurance race.. As long as I dont do anything to agurvate them I should be ok for the next race next weekend

I thought we did em at .002/.003. Don't remember though. Kibs 70 should be done tomorrow if y'all want to swing the klx by I can knock out the valves in about 15 min. And also give you my carb if you want.

IF you're giving carbs away, I'll take one for the XR.
