But all of this is conjecture. Valve lash doesn't normally go away that quickly.

Give it some time to get more data. And, who knows - you just might stumble across some low-mile or recently rebuilt heads for a song. These bikes are actually pretty rugged and have travelled loooong distances with worse troubles.

Don't worry yourself into a dither before you really know if something needs attention. Ok?

Also, I wouldn't consider doing my own heads even though I do most everything else. It's one of those things bordering on art and can trash an engine all too quickly if not done right. Especially the seats! Don't even consider them!
