In view of the tools and shims required I don't feel inclined to do this job myself. Does anyone have a recommendation for a competent mechanic with brick experience anywhere near Nuneaton, Warwickshire, CV11?

Thanks.

Hi mr grumpy,

If the 16 valvers are anything like the 8 valvers, you won't need to adjust anything.

I'djust take the cam-box cover off and measure the valve clearances in the first instance, before paying someone to take the cover off and tell you that nothing needs doing.

If anything doesneed doing then look for assistance.

My outfit's (8v) clearances have never needed adjustment in 103k miles.

BTW, if you are in the UK BMW Club, the tools are available for hire.

Paul.

As the Club's Tool Hire secretary I can agree with thatSmile

I used to be in the UK BMW club. My wife and I ran a brace of R1100S's at the time. Went to a few meets but were treated as lepers, it seems that the S was a bit of a sports bike and as we were under 60 riding sports bikes we must be the enemy.
I believe that they have even locked down their website these days so that us lepers cannot read it!

Sorry, that is not true at all. There are member only sections of the website and forum, but that is no different to many others.
