    Tornado tre 1130 valve clearance

    Hi,

    So im doing the valves clearances on the weekend, just wanted to make sure the values are the same as on the 1130 TNT?

    I cant find a dedicated values for the Tornado 1130 model from anywhere.

    The values for the TNT i found are: Intake 0.30 - 0.35 mm
    Exhaust 0.35 - 0.40 mm

    Are they ok to use on Tornado?

    I was afraid of that

    Guess i just have to go with the TNT values then....

    Checked them tonight, and the intakes were between 0.15 - 0.20 and exhausts between 0.20 - 0.35. So all were under the TNT values, but not dangerously so. Next problem is to find the 8mm shims!

    I see people taking a fine skim off them to get within the correct gaps ..
    Just an option .

    I really would not like to go to the machining route.

    Have to ask about the availability of the oem Benelli shims, i can wait since the riding season is over in here.

    When you contact Chris, tell him you have a Benelli Tre with intensely strong valve springs. Refer to me and ask for his hardest D2 shims. I'm still testing them and the jury is out for at least 12 months, but they are harder the oem shim, and should stand up better to the hammering they get.

    There was no dents on them, everything looked as it should.

    I contacted a few places allready for the correct shim sizes, expecting answers from them today.

    Be careful with shims I popped into my local bike shop and asked for 8mm shims he looked in his miscellaneous shim box, and was surprised when he said he had some, but when they gave me them they were the 8.35 diameter or whatever it was. Gutted
