I did ride it fairly hard using the full rev range on most rides which may well have been a factor.

I've read plenty of accounts that once the initial adjustment is done, they rarely need any further changes.
Good point, once I become more familiar with the process on the sprint, I'll have a go of it earlier for the VFR. ( I have a Honda shop manual to guide me )
