That's because some Bozo modified them with his ham fists and a cheap chinese 12mm open spanner edit: shifting spanner from a nice 12mm hex into some maybe 7/16" scrap metal

Has anyone done valve clearances themselves? Can it be causing the bike to struggle to start?

Yes and yes.

Should be a check you do often, many times when they start to move they won't stop. If I remember it's .20 for the intakes and .25 for the exhaust.

Clean the area above head cover. Remove spark plug and find tdc, there is a mark on the flywheel and case that lines up in the hole on the left case. Cams should be in the 10 to 2 position. Measure with feeler gauge between cam lobes and buckets. Yoy should feel slight drag at above specs. If they are too tight the real fun begins  >:D

NB do not remove the big allen nut on the left side of the magneto cover. It's a piece of pewter crap which will strip ! Rather turn the motor by hand (back wheel).

Intake: 0.10~0.20mm (0.0039~0.0079 in)
Exhaust: 0.20~0.30mm (0.0079~0.0118 in)

O moer, dis hoe myne begin het. dit kan valve clearance wees, (in my geval was die valve heeltema gewear)
dit kan ook wees dat jy n stator rewind kort (so R500 by krogh's in die Kaap), of dalk kort jy net n nuwe sparkplug.

Ek het nou al 120ure/6 000km op die bike gesit en nog net 'n oil change, en toe later 'n oil en oil filter change gedoen. Dis seker maar tyd vir 'n goeie diens, die bike sukkel net om te start as hy 'n paar uur gestaan het. Gaan hom na Julian toe vat vir 'n major service

Cool thanks, benodig mens 'n funny tipe spanner om hom uit te haal soos met die XR? Of is dit straight forward? Ook, wat kan mens verwag om te betaal vir so plug?

Die plug sit diep so jy kort n redelike lang plug spanner, ek het n tube spanner gemodify. Plug seker so R80 as ek moet skat.
