  1. g'day,

    05' cbr600rr coming on 30,000km. A full service I can do myself but need a professional to check/adjust my valve clearance. anybody have theirs done by a mechanic that did a good job? (pref west melbourne ) also how much do you think i'm up for?

    many thanks

  2. You'll be up for around $250-350 depending on the place you take it.
    I would take off the fairings ond deliver the bike to them to help save some coin.

    Pete at Everything two wheels would be a good option for you over that side of town I think.

  3. Its not a hard job to check valve clearances. Get a service manual (Haynes?) and give it a go.
    Chances are they do not need adjusting (unless the bike is becoming hard to start)
  4. starts perfect every time. I have the haynes book but I'm not confident enough to try it myself. oil, air and lube is all I touch haha. thanks I'll give those guys a call =]
