    Had this posted in the "cruiser tech" section as well, but someone said to post it here:

    3 moths ago, I had my valves adjusted (a big improvement concerning noise) on my 1979 BJ40 with stock B-eninge.
    But now, 2000km's later, it makes as much noise as it used to, maybe slightly worse.

    At slow speed (like 50km/h in 4th) it feels like it shackes a bit, but at higher rpm, it rides smooth (but makes more noise than 2 moths ago)

    What can be the problem?

    TIA

    maybe one of the adjusters were not tightened down tight enough and it worked loose. pop the cover and feel for a loose one.
