Yes - meant valve cover :). Did you have to drop the engine to do the valve clearance or easy enough to do with engine in place and the airbox off? Is it same for all years of the 675? I have a 2013 675r.

(Thanks for the help :)).

Not new gasket every time though right coz that would add up real quick :(.
Correct, hand tighten while rotating the crank clockswise, then back off a 1/4. I think the only way to check is by feel and by sound. You willneed a new gasket if it gets destroyed while taking the cover off. Sometimes half the gasket will stick to the block, and half to the cover, so it's best to have at least 1 on hand.

No, engine does not come out. Remove fuel tank, trumpets, airbox, tbs(hang over side of frame), sai, valve cover, and upper radiator bolts(makes it easier to get you hand near the exhaust valves). It is pretty much the same thing for all years, minus a few extra hoses/wires if you have ABS, learned that on my brother's 2017r last week.

Do you have a copy of the service manual? If not, google one for your bike, you will find a PDF to download.

Have the service manual. Think I have the skills but definitely dont have the confidence of doing a valve inspection. Ill be second guessing myself all the way to the track (and on it :)). Think I might give this a try though - got to start doing it some time :). You are not in LA by any chance are you :) ?

Thanks for the detailed information and the links - really appreciate it.

It may seem overwhelming, but it's pretty much a straight forward job. Maybe rip it all the way down to the valve cover to see if you can find a local member who has done this before to give you a hand with the feeler gauge? and hopefully they are in spec! I'm in Florida, otherwise I'd have no problem lending a hand.

That sounds like a good idea - will do that. Thanks again :).

Not today, but this past weekend I sold my 08 Daytona that was wrecked a couple years plus all the spare parts, replacement parts, etc. Probably could've made more parting everything out but I just don't have time for it and didn't really want to see it torn apart like that since it was still a good runner.

Unfortunately, my 2016 had a rear wheel bearing seize at 5,200 miles and just a couple weeks out of my warranty. Triumph says that they will still cover it, I just have to trailer it to the nearest dealer. Only my second ride of the year unfortunately (been very busy traveling for work and haven't been home to ride.) Was supposed to be taking it to the tail of the Dragon in about a month for two weeks of vacation, that may not happen now though.While I could easily replace my own bearings and pick up new spacers, my concern is it looks like it wore on the hub of the wheel there. Which is why I stopped punching the bearing out and contacted Triumph. Didn't even make it to the first called for service to regrease the bearings.

Just put on some r&g racing rear axle sliders and pitbull spools. Love the look of these red spools.

Ordered Triumph bar end mirrors, Triumph shorty levers, and an Ebay fender eliminator with led turn signals front and rear. Started prepping for the install of parts.

Happier than a seagull with a french fry!

Why the spools too? I thought the r&g axle sliders doubled as spools? And when you need to take the wheel off, the sliders bolt in where the spools normally go? No?

Not sure. I don’t think that’s possible though. There is a rod between the axle sliders so I don’t think you would be able to take the wheel off.
