OOps I should have searched past posts....
"I did not see your model year until now. Only on the 2003 bike should the valve clearance be checked every 15,000 miles, starting at 15,000 miles. On older bikes, the valve clearance is checked earlier and more often.
If there is no maintenance chart in your owner's manual, another older bike owner should chime in soon."
In other words....I guess I've been neglecting the maintenance on my bike [xx(]
