Weber Valve adjustment

Mike, at Red Rock Rails and I performed a valve clearance adjustment. I have about 34 hours on my engine. You can see in the photos, how the Weber valve tool is used. I had two intake valves that needed adjustment, the others were in spec. Weber makes a tight engine.
Remember, the valves wear tighter. If you put this off, its possible to burn a vale and head. BIG $$$$

If you want to do it your self, Red Rock Rails has the shim kit. You will also need the Weber valve tool.
PM him if you have any questions. The instructions are on Weber's web page.

A few things we found, that the manual dose'nt tell you.
You will need to remove the spark plugs and the fuel rail, with the injectors.
That will leave 4 holes that stuff can fall into. Push some clean rags into the holes. Also cover the Timing Chain hole. If a shim, or tool drops into any one of these holes, your job will become a lot more complicated.

I would guess it is about 1000 miles (figure 30 to 35 mph average while riding......includes sitting and idling). That's be my guess, anyway.

Re: Weber Valve adjustment

Just did a valve check on a machine that had over 2200 miles on and the valves were right where the needed to be as far as specs go, no adjustment required. But where Bearfoot had some tight ones with less hours and miles I would recommend that you at least pull your valve covers and stick a feeler guage under your rocker arms and check them out to be safe. Just remember just because you don't have ticking sound doesn't mean they are in adjustment they can be too tight.

Mike

Re: Weber Valve adjustment

Agreed....important and good info for all.... As I understand it, the Webers need to be check initially at about 25 hours and then at each 100 hour intervals.... And if need be, have the valve shims replaced with a smaller or larger shim to maintain within factory spec's???

Re: Weber Valve adjustment

I probably need to do this. I will check my book tonight, but what is the process for checking the clearance? Do you just bump the engine over until TDC or some other position and check with a feeler? Or do you have to use the tool and check clearance with that?

Thanks in advance.

OK, I think what we did is bump the starter to a position were the rocker roller is on the lowest section of the cam. If your checking the intake for example, you would have the roller in the position shown in the photo's.

The weber Tool makes this adjustment a lot easier to do. You can see it bolted to the head in the pictures. Red Rock Rails can get you one.

Here's a link to Weber's service page. It tell how to do it.

If you pull the seat, you can get to the head better.

Problems? Give me or Red Rock Rails a PM.
