Should I do a valve check?
I bought my bike used, and am not sure the last time a valve clearence check has been done.
I don't know if its anything like car engines, but its making zero noise (no ticking) cold or hot, so does that mean they are ok yet?
I know thats a tell tale sign that they need to be done, I'm just wondering if even if I have no noise, should I check mine out?
The guy I bought it from was a noob. Only rode it once. Then parked it for a year+ (it was his brother inlaws bike) Long story......
anyways, he didn't have a clue about anything on the bike, so I didn't even ask him about the valve check.
