    Valve check service !!

    Just had the 12000 mile valve check service done ...

    Had everything crossed that they didnt need adjusting but no chance ..... 814 later .... ouch !!

    They did have new factories down there though .. 12400 .. tempting !!

    You will also need the various Aprilia lock up tools if they need adjusted.

    Bike does feel better for it though , it does get a hammering on track quite a bit so its worth doing ..... but im still crying about the 814 .. my old Tuono's seemed cheap now !!

    Think yourself lucky.

    Mine was double that as it needed new inlet cams and followers

    My 2007 Gen 2 V twin T just had its valves checked at 32k....

    None needed adjusting..... its just as its left the factory - no shims have ever needed changing.

    the more i hear about the V4 it just puts me off.

    Is the 1100 as "bad" as the 1000 ?
