This weekend I adjusted the valve lash on my 2005 M50. I noticed a little ticking and the beach trip is soon so I though I would tackle it.
I did it on Sat. in a 4 hrs. Fired it up and the ticking was now tapping, no goodValve Lash Adjustment 17537562. Sunday I tore it back down and did it again in about two hrs. realizing my mistake. When I adjusted the engine #1 I did not do a full four stroke rotation resetting all valves. I will say this was not as bad as I thought it would be, but it was not joyful. The first go around was full of cursing, the next was full of praying. It worked.
Thanks to all the people who have posted their methods and outcomes.

Hi Ted,

I can appreciate your dismay after your first attempt, but was pleased to hear you had picked up on the advice posted elsewhere on the forum regarding 'best practice' for setting valve clearance.

But now you've done it once, you will find it easier next time - & won't get it wrong again.

Pleased you've got it sorted.  Valve Lash Adjustment 3498837457   Yam

I have compiled a write up of the procedure procured from various locales into one article.
It can be located here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/231064880/Suzuki-Boulevard-Valve-Adjustment
Also thanks for the positive feedback from across the pond.

Hi Ted,
Great link & walk through on how to set up the valve clearances - should help anyone who is uncertain of what is required.
