Just have a question about Valve, lifters, and cam chain adjustments.
I have a 2001 vn750, and i am working on a 84 honda shadow vt700 for a friend.
The shadow has a ticking/clicking noise. I was told it may be from the valves, lifters, or cam chain. So does anyone know anything about adjusting these on either bikes, the vulcan or the shadow??
There's a slight ticking noise in my vulcan, but it's worse in the honda.
I joined the hondashadow.net forum to get some info, but of course they cant even help with the Vulcan.
I have a youtube video of the shadow running.

Also knowing about the splines and the final drives of the Vulcan, i went ahead and did a spline job on the honda today... its amazing how these two bikes are SO SO much alike. From the tank, to the handlebars, to the seats (the vulcan has one big seat while the honda's is actually 2 seats, but they look the same!)
I mean style wise and even some mechanical things are so much alike.
The final drive on the vulcan has 4 bolts while the honda has 3, but the whole spline lube procedure was just about the same!
Thanks for the help.
