Do it yourself. I did the valves on my 2004 750.
My bike was a race bike and I use it for trackdays, it has only seen about 3,800 street miles. When I checked the valves not 1 of them was out of spec.
It really isn't hard to do, just follow the service manual.

It's not hard to check your valves although it does usually involve removing lots of parts. It can be difficult to adjust your valves depending on what type of adjustment method your bike employs. A lot of bikes use under bucket shims which require removing the cam to change/adjust. If you put the cam back in wrong you can easily bend valves or worse. Even a cam cap put on backwards or on the wrong journal can ruin a head.

I just did my valves last week. Had to adjust them and it was no big deal. If your not mechanically inclined then bring it to a shop.

Ditto, Ive done a ton of GSXR motors(Shim under bucket)

and older like mid 90's hondas with a set screw. They were all pretty easy.
