Please help! Can someone give me the "how to" on adjusting my valves

Hello, my quad is still starting fine but i can tell it's gonna need some adjusting sooner or later. I know everything there is to know about a 2 stroke engine but when it comes to four stroke i'm not the greatest since i haven't worked on them much. I was wondering if someone can kinda give me the low down on how exactly to adjust the valves and the easiest way to get to them thanks. And will it hurt the machine running it with the valves needing adjustment? Thanks

Hey dude.

This will be your best friend:

Tools needed:
- patience
- big ass allen wrench
- feeler guage

- careful when your working with the gas lines connected to the tank. If your too rough with the tank you could snap the plastic connector off the fuel pump if they are still hooked up.

- make sure to ziptie your timing chain so it doesnt fall in the head

- be ready to get covered in gas.

Take your time and you'll be fine.
Hopefully this helps. Good luck.
