I Understand completely. I was very nervous the first time I Adjusted my valves then I finally got the hang of it and there's nothing to it now. Also I use the same method as above.

Do it when your engine is stone cold. Watch the vedio RPM 750 put on. We all had to learn. It is part of maintaining the air cooled engine.
