Valve adjustment

Has anybody taken their XG in for a valve adjustment. I read somewhere the Revolution x engine needs it to be done at 12k miles. Is this true?

Well the service manual recommends that they are checked initially at 5k intervals - the clue is there in the wording - 'check'

You will likely find that they don't need adjusting - it's just a check usually for peace of mind.

It is not a major job to adjust them anyway so I wouldn't get too worried about the thought of it
