Does anybody know what the valve clearance settings are. I've checked mine and they are 0.15mm inlet and 0.28/0.30 mm exhaust. Dont know if thes are excessive because dealer is reluctant to divulge the information!
Thanks

Its OK I've found the info.
The clearances are 0.005-0.007 inch inlet and
0.009-0.011 inch exhaust. Hooray mine are OK.

Something to be careful of is to check valve clearances when the engine is really cold, if not you could get a incorrect reading.
