This morning, I checked the valve clearances on Scarlett, she'd sounded a bit "noisy" after yesterday's riding. I found the left side valves slightly looser than .004 inches and the right side exhaust valve way loose! All valves were tightened down to allow .004 gauge to clear with "slight resistance".
Scarlett and I went out during lunch to take a look around.
Blue skies, bright sun, balmy temperatures contributed to a rather mellow ride to the usual ranching neighborhood southeast of my home neighborhoods.

Scarlett sounded much quieter and smoother than yesterday, glad I checked the valve clearances.
