Valve problems

Just wondering if anyone else has had valve troubles. I have 1100 miles & 168 hrs on the Teryx and I have had to adjust the valves twice. While I had it down I checked the belt. It had 2" of deflection but it had been pulling good. I installed a new OEM belt and had to remove the thin washer from the driven pulley to get the deflection down to 1". Has anyone had to remove all the washers to get the deflection right?

I am about to remove the thick, and go to just the thin with the factory Kawasaki belt. The EPI belt was OK with the thin removed after 50 hours.

My Teryx was bad about jerking going down hill in low range. It did it since it was brand new. I guess the belt was to loose from the factory cause when i installed my new belt and set the deflection it didn't jerk anymore.
