Can you guys help? When is it time to change shims on a DRZ's valves? Mine has 44000km on the clock. I checked the clearances on the weekend, the inlet clearance is 0.1mm (Should be 0.1mm-0.2mm) and outlet valve clearance is also still in spec.

Thanks

What 44000 km and you have not had a engine failure yet, this can't be  ;) :biggrin:

come come, where da new bike pics??   :lamer:

Yip, I just try and maintain as well as I can. 2005 Model (Change oil and filters every 3000km. I commute with the bike so I don't stress the motor :thumleft:. The only failure I had to date is the stator on the alternator - Had it re-wired and now 100%. There are some pics on the pooratech thread - shows my home made rack and panniers :)
