Valves still tight I'm wowed

So after ~75 hrs on my bike I checked the valves tonight and they are still well within spec. Does this sound right? I thought I should have had at least 1 adjustment by now.

Maybe the new WR450s are just badass like that!

They do not carry the saying "bullet proof" for nothing.

The shim under bucket system doe not need much adjusting.

Was that one small adjustment an entire motor rebuild?

I'm really surprised I mean I ride this out of this thing. I can't figure out why this spits out so much oil though.

Mine (2004 model) were in spec when i bought it. Rode it for about 1200 miles and checked again, spot on!

Have you checked all of the breather tubes to make sure they aren't clogged?

WR's are very reliable and hardly ever need a valve adjustment. In my opinion, they are the toughest race spec motor out there, and this is coming from an RFS owner :-D

It's pretty normal if you are in high RPM's. Crankcase pressure I assume. Happened to me a lot when I was learning to ride it like a uni-4-fiddy.

Once you learn to get the wheelies up higher and not so much in the RPM's, it will probably stop. Just remember there is a back brake!!!

....as far as your valves go...I'm not surprised it's still in spec.
The WR heads are a much better design than the Hondas. Known for being bulletproof motors as somebody said earlier.
