Your "friends" giving you advice are idiots!!!!!!!!!! the first valve adjustment is the most critical and they will have moved the most- they are so stupid in fact, theyir heads are up their assholes so far they don't even know how fucking stupid they are!!!!!!!!
Of course get the throttle bodies synchronized
also have the TPS checked and adjusted, and check the other electronic sensors as well........it is called a "tune up" where you need to do the complete list of services and inspections
finally.........$180 plus more if any need adjusting- they will need adjusting, likely more than 10 of them on a first service.........So you may want to get some difinitive $$$$ so it isn't some surprise later
And what kind of shims is he using?
make sure to get the clearance and shim map! (so you can see what they measured as arrived, what shims were in the bike as arrived, what shims as departed and what all clearances are as departed!)
Does he have the correct ools and experience?------his statement that he will do it for $180 plus more if any need adjusting already tells me he is another fucking idiot who should not be working on motorcycles! Doesn't have the experience to see that pretty much every single motorcycle that ever comes in needs a majority of the valves adjusted especially early on! and he may well not even have the correct shims to do the job properly or accurately nor have the correct tools or knowledge/experience in their use to do it correctly............
Gee I already know all the answers to your questions- dump your friends and their "advice" becasue they are too stupid and ignorant and hopefully they never breed, dump that "mechanic" because he either........doesn't have a clue and is a stupid moron too, or.........he is out to screw you with add on costs undisclosed as of now
plugs, air filter, TPS, throttle body sync which may well include needing to clean the adjuster crew tips, BPS check, fuel pressure and flow check, electronic checks of resistance values of stick coils after the tips are thoroughly cleaned and seen to have functioning spring clips, throttle cable lube and adjustments, clutch cable lube and adjustment and so much more that "just" adjusting valves is what it takes to do a real comprehensive tune up service!
woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
