are all new machines required to be adjusted after the 100 miles brake in period? on my first rancher never did anything and it still runs fine?, although friend picked up a rancher with like 65 miles on it and the engine sounds like it makes a clicking noise sometimes when your rolling and press the throttle lightly? is this adjustment, I think its shitty oil and gas with stabilizer is not helping either? HELP LOL :hail: thanks

Valves are pretty easy, just takes alot of plastic removal to get the head completely exposed. The machines get really hard to start and sometimes you can hear a tapping. Change all of your fluids and you will be fine. I have never had to adjust valves after a break in period. I check mine once a year. Have only had to adjust them 2 times in 3.5 yearss.
