Hi Erick,
Here is what I set the clearances to on the 8 mm 2V motors:

Closers: 0 to .002 in.
Inlet Openers- .004 in.
Exhaust Openers- .006 in.

I try and get them as close to these clearances as possible. I find the bike runs smoother when the clearances are optimum.
Mike

What is an acceptable range to leave the clearance alone . Will probably not redline it much
Thanks
