Hi Brad, Yes had the air box off earlier this year to fit the iridium plugs and to fix number 1 coil clip, so I remember what a bugger it is to squeeze the airbox back into place. With regard to the mileage mine has only done 6900 miles in its life, I just do not get the time to ride or even work on her, infact this year I have covered 700 miles,
bit different to 25 - 30 years ago when I was a motorcycle courier plus only had bikes as transport (The good old days)
so with such low total mileage I would imagine the valve/cam clearances should be ok ! At what mileage should they be due a good check and adjustment ? However for future reference how does the cam cover seal, is it with a gasket or a re-usable rubber seal (which I would most likely replace anyway as the bike is now 12 years old).
