Hey guys. Doing a valve adjustment and so far so good. Question, my horizontal exhaust closer is .05 mm (.002 in) Too loose?

Thanks.

I still use the old spec which is as close to .000 as possible without binding. I think it's loose.

Crap. I hate doing closers. But I think you're right. Thanks for the advice.

What's the story with old and new specs? Is there any advantage as to how the bike runs if the closer clearance is 0?

My opinion is Ducati loosened up the specs to lower perceived maintenance costs. The motors haven't changed. Why wouldn't they run better with precise closers?

Again, just my opinion.
