    02 f12 Valve adjustment question for a friend

    im a seadoo guy myself so i had no idea when he asked me. he wanted to know if any type of valve adjustment is ever necessary. ski is all stock just has 100+hrs on it and he wanted to make sure he was maintaining it good enough.
    thanks in advance
    mike

    Honda says to check the clearences at 200 hours but many have much more that that with no apparent problems.

    Yup. 200 hrs. I bet there are quite a few people (not saying to do it) who ignore it and just ride.

    There is a rental company in Hawaii that gets over a thousand hours on theirs with the original engines...

    Most street bikes say 25k before you need to check the valve clearence.

    I have about 260 hours on mine and I have never checked my valves and do not every plan on checking them unless I am just looking for something to do.
