But 392, have you ever adjusted?

I am avid about doin it myself, as with any work saves money and gives me self assurance that I can beat my own if I it up

Plus- I was offering honest advice on the valve adjustment. I'm a real nice guy too. I'd say I'm "chill" - but there's obviously a couple definitions for that word
And I am thankful for the advice.

So with all jokes asside. Are the shims dealer only items or Avaliable most anywhere?

You can buy kits. You have to spend some cash to get the sizes you will need.

If it was something you did more often maybe. It's a total pain in the anyway. I sent my head out to be done. I was swapping valves and porting too. It would suck to buy the kit and then still end up paying for the work.

As long as it's all civil man.

I think valve checks are def worth it, but pulling cams to actually adjust sucks , and you could throw off timing/ruin an engine. If they're outta spec, leave the tank off, etc and save a few hours on labor.

Did you download the service manual I sent you a few weeks ago? Tells you exactly how to do it. If you can't figure it out based on that, keep reading until it all makes sense...if you still dont get it, take it to a shop.

I've bought the shims I needed from Motorcycles Unlimited in the past, will prob call them again when I do my next valve adjustment

If you can buy just the ones you need that's not a bad deal
