We highly recommed have the valves adjusted to keep the motor running strong.If you have noticed when you lax on your maintance is when problems occur.

Adjust them. They will tighten up. Mine were starting to get tight after about 25 hrs.

keeping the valves adjusted properly is a must! the valves tighten up and compression goes away to the point where it wont run we adjust valves about 20 hrs

Once the valves start causing a problem it could be too late.

I am sure everybody will disagree with me..... But


I wouldnt mess with them. I dont even change my oil or clean my air filter. Just drive it like you stole it and it will be fine.

I have 3500 miles on mine without any problems.... I had the dealer adjust them at 20 hours but I dont think he really did it. He didnt remove my 4 seat cage and I have been told that it cant be done with it on. I just wanted a receipt saying it had been done for my warranty.

I have heard of the valves on the Rhino being a little on the tight side but I have not heard anybody report that they were way off..... Just slightly off. It wouldnt hurt anything.
