Re: Valve clearance

the auto decomp works better at 4

generally looser is better for longevity

Orangeberg told me to use 5.5 when I bought my bike off him

if you do the turns method and measure the result with a dial indicator they can end up anywhere from 3.8 to 6 thou so bottom line is its not really very important

Re: Valve clearance

meters? or metric feets?

0.14mm is close enough to 5.5 thou (0.1397 mm)

Normally M6 has a pitch of 1 mm, so 1/6 of a turn is 0.166 mm.
I read the 1/8 turn method is also being used, which result in a adjustment of 0,125 mm.
Ore is the thread a metrical fine thread of maybe M6 x 0,75?---> 0,75 / 6 = 0,125 mm.

Re: Valve clearance

Ok, once more time, guys! What does the manual say about the proper clearance for 2001-2003 501? Is it 0.1mm or more? Thanks.
