V-Star 950

Just posted my introduction.

Long time BMW rider. Last year sold them both. This bike fits my riding style these days which is short trips and commuting to work. Fits me great, good on gas, plenty of power, and can be loaded up for a weekend camping trip. I put Hepco-Becker bags on it and they work well. They are a carry over from the BMW adv-rider days.

I'd like to check the valves as it was easy on the old BMW bikes. Looks like a little more difficult on this bike. Any advise on a service manual?

thanks
