    Looking at having my trusty NT valve clearance checked as can't find anything in the history for a few years. Local guy reckons Honda only job but I call BS.
    Any previous owners experiences?

    I'll call it BS as well. Screw and locknut adjusters. Only difficulty is access - as I know very well having a 650 Transalp.

    Engine is 4 valve per cylinder as against 3 valves on the 650's.

    Edit: Once they've bedded in after a few thousand miles, they generally don't need adjusting anyway.

    I did them myself on my old NTV650, I reckon the guy I spoke to just didn't fancy stripping off all the plastics etc to do the check.

    Similar config on my brosses and my old non deauville NTV. The only slight pain is tight access to the front pot. But once you're in its as hard as any other screw and nut job (not very), certainly easier than cams out and shims.

    Tbh they rarely go out of sync ime so unless you're worried I wouldn't bother.
