would this easy valve adjustment procedure work for an xs400?

    I thought I might share this for anyone out there having a hard time with their valve adjustment- I plan on using it myself in about 2 weeks and reporting back : )

    apparently it works for non hydraulic valve designs and it seems like it should work for an xs400.
    This would work on SOHC models I imagine since the model that is worked on in the video is a 1980 xs650, but would this also work on DOHC models- I don't see a reason for it not to?

    What are your thoughts? What do you usually set your valve clearances to? (stock?)
