Good write up. But yes you should do a valve adjust on a stone cold engine. I think the FSM for my Bandit recomended a 12hr overnight sit for all parts of the enigne to cool.

This is one thing I am going to miss VERY MUCH about the ol Bandit. Yeah it had 16valves but they were screw and locknut and the adjustment procedure was stone age simple and I'm glad I never paid someone to do it.

This whole shim over bucket stuff is for the birds seems to be a lot more complicated.
