The service manual lays it out pretty nice.

heres the service manual if you havent found it already:

http://www.club700xx.com/vb/showthread.php?t=2195

starts on page 73, its quite easy.

additionally: i just got with it (for the first time) and it took me about an hour and a half. i took my time, and did not end up having to adjust the clearance. got just over 20hrs on her.

I am actually planning on doing my valves this week sometime. I had a question for someone that has done it. I printed out the service manual while I was at work =P, and I was wondering what valve was intake and what was exhaust. I have done snowmobiles before, so I am assuming I can tell. I just want to make sure ahead of time before I dig in and get up to my elbows and set them at the opposite clearances. Thanks.

the intake valves are the ones on the rear of the motor, on the intake side - and naturally the exhaust valves are on the front of the motor, on the exhaust side. two valves for each side. i would say the chances are pretty good that you wont have to even adjust them, mine were perfect at 20hrs, still at .006 and .008. if you do, its as easy as turning a screw and nut.

LOL, I posted that comment last night when I was almost passed out at work (gotta love those boring 12 hour desk jobs) and I wasn't thinking. How more obvious could it be right? I guess I just had a humungous brain fart. I feel like a moron now, haha. Oh well. Thanks. I have a few more hours on mine though, like probably 80ish, so they may be a little off.

remove the fuel tank, plastics, covers, .006 and .008, on the left side of engine there are 2 plugs, remove them both use big one to turn to TDC and the upper to look at marks. very easy
