Okay; I plan to drop my Busa off at the shop later today to get new tires installed (PPR4s), and also planning on having them install my steel braided brake lines while it's in there. My bike is sitting around 25,400 miles and has never had the valves inspected/adjusted. The bike rides great, IMO! The only gripe I have is, when I've ridden a few miles and turn off the engine, then start the bike up again, the engine dies unless I hold the RPMs up slightly. After a few seconds I can let go and it idles fine on its own. It never tries to die once I get moving. I've posted about this issue before and tips led me to the fuel pump and associated items. All those have been addressed, including doing the external fuel filter mod, but none of it cured the hard to start after engine is warm issue. I haven't priced the valve service but I assume it would cost upwards of around $250-$300? Is that reasonable? Just trying to get things ready for the Busa Stampede in a few weeks. Just a note: The hard starting issue has been going on for well over a year now and has not gotten any worse. It started all of a sudden right after I filled it with gas before a ride. Initially I thought it was bad gas, but several tanks later, Sea Foam, and Berryman, the issue still exists.
