Yes, it’s been two years. Ideally you want to check valve clearance every 6 months, in my opinion at least. Unfortunately a lot of people (use to myself) do not service valves untill there’s a problem.Hello so my 08trc will not start unless it is bump started. This only happened up until recently and once it’s running it runs fine. When you try to use the electric start it just cranks and cranks but nothing happens. This has happened before when I first got it in the beginning of 2021 and I took it to a shop where they adjusted the valves and it fired right up after that. Could the valves be the same issue again?
you can shim them yourself, no need to pay shop prices. I was intimidated to do them myself, but after watching YouTube videos a bunch of times, it’s pretty simple.
