98 XR650L Valve clearances?

Could any one tell me the correct valve clearances? My intake valves have 0 clearance, no play at all, can't even get a 4 thou feeler gauge in there. Exhaust has some play, but I didn't bother to measure without the correct values.
Thanks!

lloydminster, but I used to live in Edm. I used to frequent redwater, bruderheim and first street all the time. You should try the Iron horse trail sometime.

Where & what is "The Iron Horse Trail"?
Usually head out to Rockey / Hinton & anywhere in between.
There is that old railroad grade that runs between Rockey & Nordegg, done most of that. Another good one (although short)an old Ranger lookout cabin, right up on a ridge top, one side looks out to prairie, the other side into he rockies. There is supposed to be a old collery almost on the Jasper park boundry, the mapbook I have shows a trail into it, but you would have to go in through Nordegg or Robb, then up grave flats road. I would like to do that one this year if possible.
