I'm thinking of synching my carbs, checking the valve clearances, and replacing the spark plugs. I've got a 00 R6 with 14k. It's only been on the street, never tracked. How often should I be doing these maintenance actions?

Related questions, I've read up on how to do the carb sync. Does anyone have a carb sync tool? Also, anyone ever checked valves that could help?

Thanks,
Steve

its not that tough to do on your own but you should be checking the valve clearances at least every 10k.... remember its when they get tight not loose that you are in trouble.
