hey there,

the manual says that the valves need to be checked every 6000, you plan to do it at 24k only?

i'm thinking to do oil and gear oil every 6000 miles, and valve check at the dealer at 12000miles

even though its really easy to check the valves but its a scary process.
the valve cover can be taken out with 3 bolts only and from there i think u can insert a feeler gauge and check it.
