« on: September 04, 2015, 02:21:50 PM »
hi, Im trying to set the valves on RCVF Honda XR200R. Motor is TDC, all valves are tight EXCEPT left intake. I fear the valve it stuck in the open position. How is this remedied?

Its real important to follow the steps in a repair manual for your motorcycle when doing routine maintenance or repair.

Valve adjustment is checked when the engine is at TDC on the compression stroke.

A bent valve requires pulling the head off and going from there......Determining why the problem occurred. Checking all related components for wear or damage, etc.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
