    I'll probably check mine at around 5K miles, just to make sure the new motor didn't settle and throw off the clearances, then I'll probably go to the 26K
    interval from there...unless they start clicking louder or performance changes...if I ever get to that mileage, lol.

    I checked mine at 15,000 miles, and I'll have to adjust them at 30,000 miles. In, oh, a month? Won't be very long with a trip to Cedar Point and then Indy before the end of August.

    Mine seem to be acting up (about 8k). To be fair though, my bike never gets a good long ride, its usually short runs here and there w/ the occasional 30+ min. ride.

    yesterday i took in my bike for its 600 miles service. both the wrench and the service writer confirmed the 26k miles valve check interval. obviously if i suspect they need attention sooner, i'll deal with it, but i figure with my conservative riding style the 26k interval will be satisfactory.
