If it is the lash adjusters normaly they will pump themselves back up after running for a while. Get the bike from the shop and thank them for their services. I would change the oil and filter if it has not been done. drain and fill the coolant system if that has not been done.
Get a can of Seafoam and add to your oil as directed on the can, this will aid in cleaning old varnished oil and help pump up the lash adjusters.
Start the engine and let it run for about 20 minutes, keep an eye on the temperature gauge, don't let it hit red.
Turn the engine off and check brakes, tires, air pressure and make shure it is ready to ride.
When your ready warm the engine for a couple of minutes then take it for a 20-30 minute ride, keep the rpm's under 4000.
After a few short rides the lash adjusters should have pumped back up, if they are the problem.
Some tapping and rattling is normal and can be minimized with a little TLC.
If you do not have a Clymer Manual get one ASAP.
