Adjusting valves

I AM SURE THIS HAS BEEN GONE OVER MANY TIMES BUT COULD SOMEONE DIRECT ME TO THE THREAD WITH THIS INFO?
Adjusting Valves
How Often Are You Supposed To Adjust The Valves & Does Anyone Do It Themselves? It Will Cost Me $120 @ The Cycle Center. I Am Extremely Broke Right Now & I Am Wondering If The Valves Being Out Of Adjustment Could Cost Me Top End Speed. I Have Lots Of Questions. Anyone Have Any Answers?

i adjust mine frequently (every 3 trips or so). but there are plenty others who have never adjusted their valves and have had zero problems nor have they had any loss in performance. so i think you will be ok not adjusting them.

I have lost top end speed so i was wondering if the valves could cause that. It isn't smoking & the power seems to be there. I just can't get the top speed i had before. Thanks for the info shonuff.

The top speed issue may be coming from your belt. When was the last time you changed it????

What year is your Rhino? It is actually really easy to do

Hapa- ''When I checked into my motel, I said to the lady at the desk:

"I hope the porn channel in my room is disabled."

"No," she said, "it's just regular porn, you sick bastard."
