Yea! Done. (It's an 08 with 13731 miles)
Got lucky and didn't have to re-shim.
EX .008 and .010- will probably re-shim next time. :(
IN both .006 middle of the range. :cheers:

Some thoughts...
1. For being a clean-sheet bike, this is a really poor layout of components. Example, have to remove the left side body panels to remove the cramped intake box and ducts.
Same for my 97 Shadow (carburetors a nightmare to R&R) and 05 Concours (valve cover a puzzle to get out of the frame). I guess Japanese don't put thought toward the end user. German things are a magnitude worse though :roll: Oh thank god it's not a BMW

1.1 I'm thinking of drilling strategic holes in the left side panels, to align with the airbox bolts, I hate removing body panels :cry:

2. Jeez there's a lot of sensors etc. there. I already replaced the speed sensor ($82) and shudder at the cost of a TPS, etc.

3. This took a few hours. But saved $$$$$$$$$$ compared to the dealer! If you are considering your own valve adj., go for it. With the help of this forum :) you can do it. Just take your time and make notes (esp. when unplugging all those connectors).

Ride safe y'all!

I find tiny bottles of paint around in my girlfriends room in different colors, she just wastes it on her claws and feet, so I use it on connectors to match them up and mark alignment on things like wheels and stuff, it works great and usually about the time I need a new color one pops up in her little wicker basket thingy
