I a moment of distraction I decided to investigate why my 1985 GPZ600R didn’t like running when it got hot. I stripped and refurbished most of the bike over the last couple of years. But hadn’t checked the valve clearances. Should be a quick job I thought... Turns out they were about half what they should have been, on all 16 valves. It’s a locknut adjustment rather than shims but its fairly fiddly if you have fingers like sausages, so I got the adjustment finished at 11.45 last night. I’ll put it back together tonight! It was my first bike 19 years ago, never got round to selling. This should mean that I have 2 bikes working out of four in the garage! I’ll get back to the Ducati shortly.
