Here are my numbers. My Rincon is used mainly on my property, with some trail riding thrown in. Not ridden much in dust. I use GN-4 for oil and change it every 2,000 miles or so. If it means anything, I used to be a technician for a multi-brand dealer. I bought this machine new.
1st check (200 miles) - ex = 0.013 and in = 0.008, no adjustment made
2nd check (2350 miles) - ex = 0.012 and in = 0.008, no adjustment made
3rd check (5000 miles) - ex = 0.012 and in = 0.010, set intake back to 0.006
4th check (8600 miles) - ex = did not check it and in = 0.007, no adjustment made
FYI - on my 4th check I was in a hurry and cheated. The intakes can be checked very quickly/easily because they can be accessed without removing all the Tupperware. You just pop the seat. Mine is at around 12,800 miles now and I plan on checking both the ex and in this winter.
