Well I am thinking about doing my own valve clearance check. And what a softie - in the past I have done loads of work on bikes and cars in the pre-computer/engine management age, but now I am nervous. What a wimp - ha ha.
When I take the tank off, and disconnect the petrol hose, am I going to have petrol pissing everywhere? Do I have to clamp the hose, or does the fuel pump stop the fuel flow?
Is there anything else I need to be aware of when checking my valve clearances?
