What's your manual say? My '05 sv1k manual says to check the valve adjustment at 14,500 miles or 48 months, whichever comes first. Checking the valve adjustment isn't too hard. Actually changing any of the clearances is a little more complicated with shim-under-bucket adjustment.

Don't expect to hear valve rattle when it's time to check. Most of the time they become tighter not looser until it's a problem.

Moderator - New riders, help me fix it and riders' gear. Send me a PM with questions, suggestions, or issues.

Never out-ride your ability to react (even stop) within the distance you can see (at least on the street).

I've been hearing valve ticking for a while now. I called my dealership about it a while back and they told me it was supposed to be done around 4000 miles and i now have about 8000 on my '05. I can only really hear it between 3800 and 4300 rpm's though. are the valves on these engines just normally loud like that?

I've read from multiple sources 14k for the SVs... I don't know about the noise though my SVS just hit over 7700 this week and it still sounds fine. The ticking, I believe, is agreed to be noisy cam chain tensioners.

that would make sense, i remember my old gs-850g had a loud cam chain tensioner....thats probably all it is then.
