I thought this was the place to plagiarize another inmates post. Wasn't there another cafe rider lurking in here.

Hope it works out for you.
Thanks Denis, not sure it makes a diff but USAA is covering it under collision. Kinda pissed at myself as I had planned to move it off the street today to my parking area in the back, guess I shoulda done it last night.

I'm not sure what this pictures are telling me, but it definitely doesn't look good.

Really sorry to see that.

Saturday, August 31 is V-Strom Valve Adjustment Day.

We can start at 9am.

All are welcome to come by and watch.


It is a three day weekend for many of us. A Crappy weekend to travel, and you have two more days to take care of your "honey-do" list as well as have family time.

It also gives you plenty of time to get your spark plugs, air filters and 4 mm tubing.

If , for some reason you have an alternative need, let me know and we could maybe do it on that Sunday. (If we have overwhelming demand, maybe we could do both days.)

This would by in my garage in The Big City... The Nation's Capital.

PM for the address or a need for an alternative date.

Here is some stuff to look at to help figure out what to do:

Pm me for address.

I thought the exhaust valves were normally bigger than the intake and the exhaust valves were at the front of the r1200gs. Could be mistaken I don't claim to know anything.

Damn Erik, sorry to see that happen. USAA is usually pretty good at squaring things away though.

Chessie, that one sucks as well. Sounds like you've at least found a good mechanic to help get you back on the road.

Just the opposite, intakes are usually always larger, never smaller then the exhaust valve.

Spin the head 180 degrees left to right so it mounts on the cylinder and the small valves are to the front.

In simple terms, it's because, when the piston is on the up/exhaust stroke the burned gas is under compression and is easily pushed out past the ex valve.

it is harder to get the air mix into the cylinder using the vacuum left behind by the piston going back down. Once the outside air has gone through the filter and intake plumbing, a large portion of the 14.7 PSI atmospheric pressure is lost. Hence a bigger inlet valve helps.

There is only so much space in the cylinder head so the lions share goes to the intake valves.

Tremendous bikes there.
