Put the finishing touches on the DIY for the Valve / Tappet inspection and made it public.
Video to follow soon as time permits.

I did mine while I had the engine out which made for a very quick and easy job with the ease of access.

This was the first valve check for my std 04 650 at 50+k miles.

You can check the whole DIY here: DIY - BURGMAN 650 Valve / Tappet Inspection

This diy does not cover the shim replacement part.

My tolerances were still within spec for now, may need a shim adjustment in another 20-30k miles.

Here are my tolerances:

IN..: #1 12 mm / #2 12 mm / #3 14 mm / #4 14 mm
EX.: #1 14 mm / #2 14 mm / #3 19 mm / #4 19 mm

Big thanks to Buffalo for taking the time to answer my questions.

As usual LeDude excellent work, and the detail involved in editing the photos is really great. Just wanted to acknowledge all the work you have invested in this (and the rest of both the BurgKB and your own BurgmanCentre) to help the rest of us mortals.

I'm new to scooters, Burgman's, and the 650 Exec that I now have the pleasure of owning. I've put on a pitifully low number of miles :( since mid-December when I bought it, and for the short time I've been on this forum, I've received a lot of help from a bunch of people regarding a variety of minor things.

And when it comes to technical stuff, there are a lot of people here that refer to your excellent tutorials and other technical advice. I don't know if I'll be able to put enough miles on my 650 to get to the point of inspecting valves myself, but I just wanted to thank you for being the resource that you are on this forum, and for being selfless enough to share your practical/technical knowledge and experience with those of us that couldn't do this stuff ourselves without help.

And to all the others on this forum that so willingly share their experiences and suggestions about all kinds of things, I'm also very thankful, and am looking forward (as my spine keeps healing) to getting out in the wind more. Hope everybody has a great day.

--Andy
