valve ajustment for HD 2001 sportster 1200 custom / how to do it
Model: 1200 sportster custom1200cc
How are you ?
Those are hydraulic lifters. There is no valve adjustment procedure and no way to adjust valbes. If you are hearing a ticking noise or any valve train noise, the engine will need to be inspected.

Has the bike sat for quite sometime without being ridden ? Lets say 3 or more weeks and this is when this happen ?
yes changed gas checked plugs drained carb
Thats not going to do it. Your going to have to remove the carburetor, fuel tank and clean the entire fuel system the correct way. Varnish will not drain from the carburetor. A carburetor kit would be recommended if your not familiar in cleaning carburetors.
