If u listen to the opinions on here, 80% say dont worry about the valves at 10hrs. 20% say adjust them. I didnt adjust mine and at 20 hrs now I can feel my machine getting stronger . Well.... before I crashed it was anyways .... **** !!!

These numbers look wrong. Of course I don't have actual specs and I'm not sure anyone does but I've never seen numbers like that.

Page 41 of manual...........

Valve Clearance

Exhaust: .0043 to .0075 in
Intake: .0024 to 0055


Benzo, I'm not gonna say you're wrong but I think you are missing a zero. 0.04" on the intake is WAY too loose. 0.004" on the intake is much more realistic.

.0024 on intake seems really tight to me, I would shoot for the .004 mark
If I were doing it I'd also go .004 on intake and .006 on exhaust. I'm almost at 10 hours but after this thread I've decided to hold off on doing the valve adjustment until we can get some positive numbers. It's not going to hurt anything to wait until 20 or even 40 hours and hopefully by then there will be a definitive answer on exactly what they should be set at. This is not something you should have to guess at.

In .0024-.0055in and Ex .0043-.0075 per the Maverick repair manual.

Mine were tight @ 10 hours, couldn't get a .002 gauge in the intakes or .004 in the exhausts........ I went .004 and a snug .008.
