Default 2008 Sportsman 800 Valve Adjustment

A friend says it's not needed for some reason.

Is this true, and if so, then why?

Thanks.

Your friend is right. The Polaris twins have hydraulic lifters, therefore no adjustment is possible or necessary. Your valve train has zero clearance all the time. [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/img]
