Valve adjustment on a hot or cold bike?
Just for starters, 2014 s1000rr with about 16.5k miles.
So I wanted to save some money and bring my bike in for service with everything taken off so I'm not paying extra for someone to take an hour or two to disassemble it. I've seen things about checking valves when cold and adjusting while warm or something like that.
The weird thing is, a bmw dealer said I could bring the bike disassembled and they quoted me less. Then a non dealer bike shop told me about the hot/cold thing being and issue and told me they need to be able to start the bike...
Does it really matter for a regular road driven bike?
Should I be concerned at all? If I have to pay like $200 extra for a tech to take my fairings off I might just do it myself and learn something new lol.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
