    Are you bringing it to our attention that once again, we can find the vendor is providing Different information depending where and what we read.

    When I questioned the dealership about the valve clearances, I was informed they use the specs listed on the sticker underneath the seat and to use any other spec it may serve to be grounds for Piaggio not to honor the warranty if something were to happen.

    I am living life dangerously and told them to set the valves at .005" and .007". (begins to sing "the middle" by Jimmy Eat World)
