My mechanic where I bought my used 2007 650R said he doesn't even bother doing valve adjustments anymore on the 650Rs because he said that even with high mileage they never need adjusting. Is there any truth to that? Thanks.

Find a new mechanic since it does need to be checked every (can't remember) miles regardless.

IIRC, the manual says to check at 22,500 miles and adjust as needed. I know I do my car every 15,000 miles. First time I did it I didn't know when it was done last and had to adjust all the valves. Second time, 15,000 miles later, I think I had to adjust two of five exhaust valves and none of the intakes. Check when recommended, adjust if needed.
