I have never checked the valves on mine. I get 55 MPG on nearly every tank. I have never heard any valve train noise. (Not that I could hear it now with the aftermarket muffler) My bike has more power than ever before. I believe that gas mileage is a real serious indicator of whether the valves are within specs or not. I think if my gas mileage dropped below 50 MPG for say two or three tank fulls (and I wasn't getting gas in say Utah or Mexico) I would check the valves. With the stock exhaust you should be able to hear some valve chatter at hard acceleration.
