I'm interested on this topic. I purchased, a new 2013, two days ago. I was told it needs the valve check at 600 miles.

Excellent.  Ask the dealer if the 2014 model needs the valve check.  If they say no then ask them what has changed in the engine from 2013 to 2014.  Ask them to speak to Honda and find out why.  It is a fair question.

To do the valve check the body work comes off, tank off, engine opened up etc.  It's a fair bit of work and if not necessary then why should you have it done.

Will be interested to hear how you go!  :821:
