919 Valve Check at 30K

Did a valve check at 30,000 miles and everything was within spec. I put the valve cover back on and broke a bolt dead center....
I removed the long broken threaded bit after a couple hours of tedious agonizing bloody knuckle scraping.

Is it normal for the valves to be within spec at 30K? I was expecting to have to use the shim kit.

yeah perfectly normal for em to be in spec at 30 k... the 919 motor is quite easy on the valves.

and this is why you use a torque wrench on those bolts... and also go by feel as sometimes oil will get on the threads and mess up torque readings.

Thanks for making me feel good on pushing the valve check on mine to 40K. Redlines and all

I can't imagine the PO checked them. That's impressive!

Makes me feel a little better about waiting til 25K for mine! I bought it last year with 180 miles on it, now has a little over 12K miles. I'm pretty easy on my bike, hardly ever makes it over 7000 RPMS(perhaps I shouldn't admit that?).

Every day I ride it, and read about it, makes me glad I stumbled upon this bike. She ain't leaving the stable ever, unless it's beyond my control or her time to go.

This bike rocks. It does everything.

My 9er sees the rev limiter multiple times every time i take it out (under load of course) ... no valves needed adjustment at 16k when i checked.

Mine 919 is about to tick over to 30,000mi and it gets riding fairly hard every day for last four years and its valves are still in adjustment as well,aside from a wheel bearing and a fpr it has been problem free (knock on carbon fiber)
