I know, I know, this question has been asked many times!

What is the current most popular valve tappet gap settings for a '78 R100/7?

I have heard a variety of gap settings.

The most recent: Intake, .004 & Exhaust, .008.

I have also heard: Intake .006 and Exhaust, .008.

Has there been any sort of consensus?

Years ago, on my R50/2, it was recommended to be .006/.008 but I found that .008 on the exhaust was too tight and when engine got hot, it would never totally close - evidenced by hard starting. I went to .009+ and problem totally solved!

I want to check/reset my valve and want to go with what has proven to work over the years!
