i have traveled on the my africa 30 000km.
what is the procedure when adjustment? it is necessary to dismantle the engine from the frame?
thank you very mach
I'm trying to find definitive size information as well...I'm 99% sure the shims for AT are 9.48mm same as the ones for several other bikes including their 450 motocrosser. My Suzuki DR-Z400S used that same size, so I already have a full set. I'd sure like to see it in an official Honda document, but I haven't seen that yet.Any one know what size valve shims the ATwin takes. Hoping they are standard 9.48mm size...
Talking to my honda dealer the other day about this, I asked when to have them checked,they replied 30,000miles is ok but we havent had to make many adjustments on the vast majority of bikes we have inspected....I have not herd of anyone needing to shim the exhausts, the intakes are adjusted with w screw/lock nut. (I haven't herd of any intakes that REALLY need adjusting either).

I have stripped down my VFR VTEC in the past to get to the valves - and this is considered a complex bike due to the V4 arrangement - but I can confirm that the CRF is even more complex to get to them. In my case, I decided to leave the dismantling/assembly job to a mechanic/friend with the agreement that I would check the valves, which I did.I’ve started to strip down my bike for its first valve check. Never have I had a bike that so much kit has to be removed for a service, it’s virtually giving me nightmares !!!! Awkward just doesn’t accurately describe this job.
I haven't found much wrong with mine at 46K km, apart from an exhaust one that was slightly open at 0.27 with limit 0.25. But maybe 100K km is too long an interval for the exhaust ones that use screw/locknut - just in case any one of them closes too much (the intake ones that are shim-based will be surely within the limits).Getting close to 60k on my 2016 manual, to check or not check the valves. The bike runs perfect, starts perfect, gas mileage the same as the day I bought it. I’m thinking,just going to keep on riding & maybe check at 100k. ������
