Hello all. I have been adjusting the valves on the bike using the feeler gauge supplied in the on bike tool kit. The spec in two different books I have states the gap as .002 inch or .05 mm. During a valve adjustment yesterday, I decided to measure the guage I have been using, and it measures .004 inch and .10 mm (respectivly)!!. I pulled the .002 feeler gauge out of my toolbox, and it is noticably thinner than what I have been using. The bike seemed to run ok with the old setting, just wondering what is right.(or if there is any difference) I tried to gap a valve using the .002 gauge, and there was almost NO gap whatsoever. Just felt too tight. Any insight on this?
