790 Dukes Engine

The KTM 790 Duke is built around an all new and ultra compact 799c LC8c parallel twin engine. KTM claims it produces 103hp at around 9,000rpm, as well as 63.6lb-ft of torque. With 100hp and a mere dry weight of 372 pounds, this bike is looking to be quite the street machine.

I'm very curious about what's required to adjust the valves on the new 790 engine. Are shims utilized, or some type of screw or eccentric mechanism?
