Hi,

I was just wondering if some one could let me know what the intake and exhaust valves should be adjusted too on my 88 GSXR 750?

I am looking at doing this before I start riding her again.

Any other tips of other maintenance to do while i'm in there would be appreciated too!

Thanks,

Jason

Would suggest you tighten up the tolerance to .004 to .0045 I know my 86 runs a lot better when I take the time to do a better valve set than the factory wider tolerance. I make sure that is not tighter than the .004 ie .0035 is not acceptable.

it'd be that much longer 'till the next adjustment.

For the back fire-

Check the side stand swithc: Put your bike on a rear stand and see if the kick stand is "loose" if it is there are three fixes

1) Disconnect the side stand switch - just connect the two wires.
2) Get a stronger spring
3) Spend the $110.00 for a new kick stand.
