I'M DRIVING MYSELF CRAZY!

I decided since I was going to check the valves on my 999 during it's spring tuneup I might as well do the valve timing (I was to busy to do it last year). It sounded like a good idea at the time..................

After running the motor through it's cycle 52 times! I think I finaly have it done to my galacticaly anal standards. I should not be allowed to do anything with so many variables, there is no doubt.

And to top it all off the little feeler guy that goes on the valve shim broke on my last time through
Now I get to make/rig up a replacement and go through the whole check again, who knows it could be wrong


I should have had one of my techs do it

You should have drank a six pack first.

Could have been worse Jason.
You could have taken your bike to a mechanic that didn't know squat about your bike who would then charge you an arm & a leg for substandard work & then blame you when it all goes wrong ...
But then again there is that Section8superbike place just down the road from you so I guess that would never have happened anyway ...
