I have 55000 miles on my gsr and it makes a faint tapping when I first start it up and finally idles at 750-800 rpm. Does that mean I need a valve job and if so what should the costs be? If you live in the Bay Area that might be better considering the different costs of living. Thanks guys.

Exact is offering 120 for the job.

valve lash/clearance adjustment you mean...its a really simple do-it-yourself maintenance job. But if you dont have the tools or mechanical experience, you should get it done by a mechanic.


It'll run about 100 bucks for Honda to do it.
