What are the symptoms of valves which need adjusting? How often should I be adjusting them?

Hardstarting, lack of throttle response, are 2 common symptoms. I think KAW. recommends every 100hrs., they do on my P-700.

Valve clearance when cold

Exaust : 0.20~0.25 mm (0.0079~0.0098 in)
Intake : 0.10~0.15 mm (0.0039~0.0059 in)

its also under your seat

Mine seems to start fine since my last adjustment but stalls frequently. It seems like I have less power also, but that could be the snow.

when in doubt; readjust 'em. A burnt valve, from a too tight adjustment will cost many $$$$$ to fix.
