I dont know who told you 10-15 tanks of gas before the first valve adjustment, but if you wait that long your going to need more than just a valve job!! Try after about 3-5 tanks!

so every 3-5 keep adjusting them and do you have any instructions on how to do it or should I get a service manual...Thanks because the valves if you wait to long they will tighten up and start to cup isn't that correct if you do not adjust them.

3-5 tanks for the first adjustment after break-in then I would go about twice a year if you ride quite a bit. You can sign up with Honda HERE and get the manufacturers info
