    Great guide. Perhaps you can help; I have been looking for the valve clearance setting on my Pulsar 220F for a while and can't get any answers. Also whether they are set hot or cold.

    Thanking you in advance

    Sorry for too late reply.According to the service manual of P220,its 0.05mm(intake) and 0.1mm(exhaust).The setting is done when engine is cold for more precision.

    A motorcycle functions entirely in accordance with the laws of reason, and a study of the art of motorcycle maintenance is really a miniature study of the art of rationality itself.

    Default Is this D.I.Y Tappet adjustment.?

    I have been getting a ticking sound from the engine (RTR 180 ABS) as it heats up,the sound increases while revving.A mechanic told me that the tappets needs adjustment.Will this D.I.Y fix the problem.
    If not, can anyone help me out with what to do..

    Thanks!
    The only difference would be the top of the adjustment screw.Most of the bikes these kind of tappet screw.It requires special tappet adjustment tool for adjustment.




    While some bikes like the Suzuki GS150R have tappet screw of this type.You need just a screw driver to adjust these ones.
    That guide is just excellent !!! well done and nicely explained.
    Bro can you help me with the FZ16/FZS/Fazer engine ???
    Here is my problem :

    I live in dhaka,BD. Bought a Fazer cybergreen 2011. The bike engine was run in properly and services done.
    For the first 1300kms i only stuck to Yamalube mineral 20w40 and changed oil thrice. i was looking for FS oil
    but its not avilable in BD at all. i used a korean KIXX SS 20w50 oil till 1700kms. Then i got my hands on
    Mobil 1 racing 4T 10w40 FS oil and an Iridium plug (actually made for r15). And my problems start here... The bike engine was in supreme condition until then.
    After 100 km in the odo using the Mobil 1 the bike was performing better but the there was some minor clattering
    sound started to come out of the engine when it was hot, say after running 20-30km. Then after 400Kms on this
    oil the sound was very much apparent, even at idle in neutral. The sound is at its max around 4300-5000rpm.
    The engine felt very harsh, clattering as if there are some loose nots put in the engine by someone, sounds like the
    piston hitting hard. Have i damaged my engine ??? i drained the oil at 400km and put Valvoline 4t premium SS 20w50
    but the sound is there and bugging me. 1 thing i need to mention here is with the KIXX and Mobil1 i was using an IRDIUM plug
    meant for R15, i didnt have any problem with the KIXX but with the Mobil1. Here in BD the weather is always hot
    and very humid. And one last question, can i use a K&N stock replacement filter in my bike? will it worsen the matter?
    Guys and Bike Gurus i need your help and advice very badly.

    Has the above scenario changed my valve adjustments ???
    I am guessing it has become tighter! What do you suggest?
    Because sound it is ok when engine is cold and just started and after 2-5 mins
    the sounds start and is at max when run for a few kilometers and around the
    4300-5000 rpm band. Please advice.
    Thanks in advance.

    @Drifty : Superb DIY! Thanks a million!!
    I did it today morning along with my brother's help when the bike was fully cold. The rattle sound has reduced a lot. The inlet clearance was wrong, almost 0.08mm! I set it correctly.

    One thing I would like to mention is your pics make it seem like there is lot of space around the inlet and exhaust port but actually there is very little . Had a hard time adjusting with forceps and spanner. Another mistake was I assumed I had 9mm ring spanner & I didnt! So managed with open one, maybe thats why I found it a bit difficult.

    I also managed to damage the crankshaft rotation bolt so I set it to TDC using kick lever

    Anyways thanks again for taking the time post DIY. Would have had to visit SVC again if not for this.

    Brilliant post man.. do you advice me, a person who has never adjusted tapits before to do it.? I have a basic idea on mechanics. I've opened 2 stroke engines. Never fiddled with a 4 stroke. Pls advice.

    You just need to make sure your piston is at TDC, if not in TDC then u should not fiddle with tappets. Rotate the flywheel counter clock to match the T mark with index mark on the body, then check the tappets if they are loose or light. If they are tight rotate the crank fully 360 degree and then again check the tappets and they should be loose. Now u can continue with tappet adjustment. If your crank rotate slightly while adjusting tappets then don't panic, nothing happens, valves remain close because cam shaft lobes doesn't touches the rocker arms.

    Hi Drifty. Lovely DIY explanation. Can you tell me the clearances for a TVS Fiero? I think they are different from a Suzuki Fiero. It would be very helpful as I plan on doing it myself.
    Ride it like you stole it! But buy your own helmet.
