My dealer told me they wait until 18,000 miles for the first valve check. I had it done in April with 18,500 miles and no adjustment was needed. He also changed out the brake fluid. And yes mine has carbs...the last year for them on the America.
My son who is 28 also has a black 2008 America ...2nd one after his first black '08 was totaled after an idiot pulled out in front of him last year. I think he has about 4,000 - 5,000 on this one as it only had about 2,000 on it when he found it in Michigan last Winter. He insisted on another '08 because he wanted carbs.
