It wasn't access that I was concerned with. The camhead design is already a more complex valve adjustment than my 07 Hexhead. I put on a lot of miles and wouldn't consider a camhead just for that...

What is water cooling likely to do for maintenance intervals? Are valve checks/adjustments still going to be every 6k? If so I am thinking that folks concerned with frequency or ease of maintenance...

That is very true. Right now we have a HUGE group of aging baby boomers that manufacturers will need to consider though. It may be that a lot of potential buyers for the new GS want easier...

I am with you. Go back to simple screw type valve adjusters too. To me, ease of maintenance has always been one of the older boxer's great strengths.

I have a neighbor that owns a Yamaha...

Mine are pretty scratched up too, doesn't bother me though.

If it really bothers you, try buffing them with machine polish. I've used the machine polish 3 from Griot's Garage with good success on...

I have never regretted buying an Adventure. The extra fuel range is nice, even when you don't absolutely need it. You don't have to fill the tank all the way up if weight is an issue for some...
