I just reached the 200 mile break-in point on my new Kodiak. I've done all the oil changes, but I'm curious as to how many of you had the valve clearance checked as recommended. The valves on this new 700 engine are not adjustable as previous models. If the clearance gap isn't within specs, the valve spacer or shim has to be changed out. Doesn't seem like an easy task, nor does it sound like something that would be required on a new engine. If I hear from the group that "YES, my valves needed the adjustment", then I'll consider taking it in. I believe the dealer quoted something like $300 for valve service. Ouch!!
