A lot of R! guys find their valves in spec when they check them. This if from martinc three years ago:

"my 99 has over 450k km(279k miles) on it and the valves are just starting to tap...adjusted them once at 21k km and only 3 were kinda loose but withng specs....still running original cam sprockets and chain damn it!"

I'm currently pushing 50,000 miles and have never checked mine and don't plan on it. Just going to run it til it don't run no more.

Get em adjusted. Should be something to do every 25000 or 30000 miles. I know the sounds youre having too. Got a 01 myself with almost 45000 miles. I had them as well, got to a point where i started having to adjust my idle speed to keep the bike from dying at idle. Got mine adjusted, the intake valves were pretty off. No more sound, perfect idle and you get so much response and power back.
It's gonna be expensive. Shops know that a 2001 r1 is a pain to work on, so go for a shop that has a flat rate instead of per hour. It's a long job. it'll easily be around 300 or so, depending on where you go. Of course, a Yamaha dealer is much preferred.
It's worth it.

does anyone know what the clearances should be?

Im looking at a manual, but a couple of friends think the clearances listed are way too tight to be right, can someone post up the intake and exhaust clearances for a 2001 model?

Intake should be .11mm to .20mm
Exhaust should be .21mm to .30mm

Gotta remember though: You can either take your friend's word for it, and risk continuing too run rich or lean, or they can be adjusted to specs and you'll be safe. Something like a valve job, I recommend using a dealer, that way it's done right, and to specs.
