I Ride: 04 FE550
valve check

Hi All,

I'm new to the Bikes (well since owning one as a kid) but got myself a fe550.

giving it a good overhaul before its maiden ride (chain, sprockets etc etc) but have decided to check the valves and adjust where needed.

Now I watched the vid on you tube (quite an easy process) however I just want to be sure on how "tight" the centre bolt needs to be?

the vid says tight but no force I interoperate this as from being loose to the point where it just grabs and feels tight (no longer sloppy loose) is this correct or?

Any assistance or advise will be appreciated.

yes
just make sure the nut is well snugged so as to not come loose.
