You don't adjust them as they are hydraulic.

You have the same model & year as mine - which has Hydraulic lifters as standard. My advice is a) leave 'em alone until b) You've bought a Haynes manual for the Sportster series - which tells you everything you need to know about this bike.

I put drag pipes on,now crank position sensor


There is no adjustment to the valves on your Evo Sportster. The tappets are self adjusting hydraulics unless someone has changed them. Take a look at you pushrod tubes, are they should be one-piece tubes.

Sorry but I cannot explain why your crank sensor keeps giving trouble. I know nothing of the electronics on the newer bikes. But I do know that the last Sportster that used solid tappets was the 1985 model Ironhead. All Sportsters since have hydraulic tappets and require no adjusting.
