Valve clearance check

Hello All,

I'd like everyone's experience and opinion on HOW OFTEN they actually do the valve clearance check.

Manual says YEARLY, and it seems like it's too many times and very costly, cause even if you don't adjust anything you still have to replace the valve cover gaskets etc...

i do my own maintenance, but I'm planning to do that specific one at the dealer even though it's really not that complicated and i have feeler gauges and all that. I'm thinking to do it once every 2 YEARS. not yearly or every 18k miles to $24000 (assuming i drove 12k miles a year)


How often have you done it on your bike? what is the year and mileage of your bike, have you done it yourself, or at the dealer?

thanks
