Hello, new rider here. Long story short I'm trying to do a valve adjustment on a 2006 rebel 250. I'm at top dead center for the right piston the book says .06 to .10mm clearance with a gauge.

The confusion is from the Rocker arm to the top of the spring I have a massive gap like 1/4 inch. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks any help is appreciated

There is a much simpler procedure for adjusting the valves than the ones in the service manuals. Read this for details: FAQ: Valve Adjustment | Page 12 | Honda Rebel Forum

Without pictures, it's difficult for me to envision how there would be that much gap when the valves are in the adjustment range. Here is a video of how to adjust the valves, but you can ignore everything in it except for the valve clearance/adjustment portion, which begins around 8:06.
