I need to get mine done.. a little bit of noise now.. I called my dealer and they said they haven't done a valve adjustment on a 700 yet?? doesn't make sense but sounds like other guys with 700's have done adjustments..

When the valves are off a lot you machine will loose a little power thats what mine did and also be hard starting, a little tip adjust them a little on the tight side.

Thanks Joe. Those look pretty cool. So from the looks of the wrench to me, the outer loosens the locking nut and all you have to do is twist the thumb knob to adjust the valve, correct? Pretty nifty......
That is correct It is so much easier now for me to do the valves . I dont mind doing then now.
