72,000 km service & my 1250 valves are still in spec .................. I'm beginning to  wonder if they will ever need to be done.................

The local Suzuki dealer I used for mine doesn't do valve clearances because in his experience they never need doing...

At the recent 96,000kms service, I was also told mine were fine. The older mechanic, Bob, said that it would be unlikely to ever need adjusting if you principally rode it using the torque, ie not revved to redline (or even near it).
