Spark plugs look good so that's not the problem. Very seriously doubt it'll be valves either. I'm betting it's going to be fuel filter or pump and I had a suspension it might be that from the beginning but this needed to be done anyway.
Filthy engine bay very clean engine inside. Not even a stain once I dried the oil up.
Now for lash check. Yee haw

How to get maximum valve lift.

Run it to 50K miles.
Almost 48k miles and valves are still inside specifications. Barely but their in.

Im with you....in spec means just that. If you search its not hard to find a new fuel filter. Kawasaki does not list one specifically for our bikes, but there are other options.

Does barely in spec mean you are going to make adjustments while you got it tore down, the electrodes looked pretty good, did not look wore down on the plugs. Could a coils assembly be breaking down? Did you mess with the TPS when you got your first Ivan flash adjust on it?

Your plugs LOOK darker than mine did. At least thats what the pic shows. I tried to take a picture, but the colors were so far off from reality that I never posted it. I was thinking fuel filter because of the high rpm nature of his problem.

I stole this pic from Fred Harmons site for the concours 14. I believe our pump uses this same strainer, or filter. Look at how small it is. By 48,000 miles its seen over 1200 gallins of fuel.. It would not take much to clog one. Im not sure i would do anything with the throttle bodies. Ebay prices being what they are, those are damn near disposable.

@Mark59 Yeah I'm making adjustments. I'm going to have to oder in more 2.90s unless someone has some low 2.90s laying around they want to get rid of.
I only had 5 and needed 9.
@rcannon409 looking at the color I would say they are a half shade darker then perfect at this point. I dont feel its anything to stress over and with that many miles on them they have probably cycled more than a couple times at least by now.

Its fun to work on this stuff, and i would probably do the same, but in all reality, there is no reason to touch those valves.

Its such a strange thing, but when you see the number 2 intake at .15, its good, and thats about it. It sounds like it should be a warning, but you cant interpet this info like that. Odds are very good that in another 25,000 miles it would stay right where its at. That valve was probably at .15 at 3000 miles.

Thats why those go/no go gauges are awesome because its all the into a person needs. If you ever have to repeatedly adjust a valves clearance, its game over.

Maybe a better way of saying it is that valve thats at .15 is not going to move to .14...then to .13. ..then to .12. If it was doing that, you would have never saw 4000 miles.

And for fuck sake, if you adjust, dont do that dumb thing of aiming for the middle. These tighten unless someone fucked up the base measurement. Shoot for the upper end of loose.

Recon Avintage’s bike will ever run again lol, I guarantee when he gets done it will be right. Well we had another rider bite the dust, he slammed in the back of an 18- wheeler on the interstate at a high rate of speed in the wee hours of the morning this weekend.
