I'm starting this thread since we all seem to be getting more miles on our Groms. The valve adjustments should be coming up.

So if anyone wants to share a DIY on the valves adjustment, DO IT!

you can buy it from Helminc.com


How much is that...$200?


You know...this engine has ben around a long time. Adjusting its valves must be similiar to the older ones. If someone could point us toward a proceedure for them we could probably wing it. I noticce a circular piece on the head that looks gasketed. Im guessing it comes off when you adjust the valves?

For starters whats the clearance intake and exhaust? I dont see any decals on the Grom that tell what they are.

Most of us need the service manual. As I recall, a couple of people tried removing the oil from the wrong bolt. Valve adjustments are a little more involved...not much, but unless you have done it before, you need a manual or video. Word of mouth and tidbits of info will not work all that well. Soda can really? I had no idea. Think I'll stick with feeler gauges though. The service manual is only $45 including shipping and postage. Just buy it. There's tons of stuff in it...changing the air filter, cleaning the centrifugal oil spinner, troubleshooting, torque values, service intervals, etc.

Now that's just dumb.. No excuse for that, everyone on here owns a brand new Grom which means they have a brand new owners manual which means it shows exactly which bolt to remove, what to torque it back to and what oil to fill up with

never bought a new bike off the showroom floor before until this. but.. wouldn't a valve adjustment be covered under the 1 year warranty?
