Valve Adjustment (VTX 1300)

While my regular valve write-up is still “under construction” I have this video guide available until I finish the regular text/pictures version.

    I wish there was a bit more talk about actually adjusting the valves. I’ve attempted that job once on a different bike before. It had a slew of problems and it is actually covered up with a tarp somewhere, but I digress. When I did the job, I wasn’t sure how snug I should expect the gauges to be against the adjustment screw. I’m certain I screwed it up and left the clearences way too tight. It was nerve racking and counter productive. But I still would do it again if I had just a bit more of a feel for it.
