well i have the 03, my friend has the 04 and his valves are fine (almost same mileage)Originally posted by southjersey636
very odd that some bikes valves are out of spec at 15,000 while others like mine were fine at 25,000. If I recall though the 2004 models Kawi did some sort of break in procedure with the valves so they wouldnt go out of spec as quick compaired to the 03's. I might not be def on this but I could have sworn i read this ssomewhere before.
Im going on 33k and plan to over the winter; check my valves, sync the tb's, new valve cover gasket, clutch-throttle cables and new front tire.
if i do end up adjusting valves this weekend i'll take some pics, possibly a write-upOriginally posted by warbuk

i've got bout 17,000 miles and it's not going in a shop.
