I would recommend you , if there's no problems at all to the engine of your missing ,hestation or idling or tick over and speed and or any kind of noise, thn you need not worry about anything.
Just remove the spark plug examine it to its condition and gap , reset the gap if needed or best replace it.
Check too the air filter, pressure blow it and if its in worse condition replace it.
Check to the battery if it has one , if its a non-maintenance free check the acid level and if low fill her up to the level with distilled water.
Check the brakes and adjust as necessary.
Check the drive chain and adjust as necessary.

Once done.... your service is done!
Have a nice and safe riding!
Good luck.

How to adjust tappets

You have asked a very big question. Adjusting the tappets is another way of saying adjusting the valve clearances.

Lots of engines these days are fitted with hydraulic tappets that are self-adjusting. Some engines are overhead camshaft types with bucket tappets and the clearances are adjusted by measuring and selecting different thickness shims. The shims are sometimes under the bucket and sometimes over. The former is a fairly big and complex job to adjust and the latter is fiddly and requires much patience.

Traditional designs using adjusting screws and locknuts exist on all manner of engine types and once the principle of which one to adjust when is learned, these are relatively straightforward.

I strongly suggest you discover first what sort of tappets you need to learn to adjust, learn something about the way the engine works and why the tappets need periodic adjustment and then pay somebody to show you how to do the job so next time you will be able to do it yourself.
Adjusting the tappets is one of the core skills of the mechanic and it is learned better by demonstration and understanding than from a book. No book can adequately describe when a feeler blade has a good or a bad "feel"...

Good luck!

Whats tappet clearance for nissan d21 td 2.5 engine

You are going to have to get the Haynes manual for the vehicle to get the valve clearance specs. Remember a cold engine adjustment is slightly less than the final or hot engine adjustment as the metal expands.

How to agust tappets on a 250 pre cross flow ford 6

If you have hydraulic lifters(tappets) then you turn the adjusting screw 1/4 turn past the point where there is no noise from the rocker arm. If you have solid lifters, then you'll have to get the cold clearance spec for that engine and adjust accordingly.

You probably need to adjust your valve lash. This is part of the routine service on a Virago.
.004" intake and .006" exhaust is the specs on a COLD engine.

Good luck, i hope this helps.

Ticking noise in engine .louder when it the cam chain

A ticking sound that gets louder as the engine warms up usually is an indication of the valves need adjustment. The clearance between the valve stem and the tappet on the rocker arm will get larger over time and needs a periodic adjustment. The cam chain can make noise as well, but "usually" more of a continuous noise that will change with rpm's (may quieten when accelarating/deccelerating). If it is the valve clearance, it is not an immediate concern, but should be adjusted to prevent unnecessary wear on the tappet/stem. Another way to tell is if it quitens somewhat with an oil change. Newer oil will provide more of a dampening effect on the contact between the stem and tappen, thus reducing the noise.

I have a 2010 MTD Yard machine 21 inch snow thrower {123cc} and it broke a valve tappet bolt.I need to no were to set the intake and egzaust valves clearance.Thanks!

I can give you Briggs and Stratton figures for valve clearances of an engine this size. You may have to experiment a little till it runs right. can adjust the intake valve (when it is closed) while the exhaust is open and adjust the exhaust valve (when it is closed) while the intake is open if you can tell...or ya can adjust them when the piston is at TDC on compression stroke (both valves closed). Intake: .004"-.006" Exhaust .004"-.006" (Vertical crankshaft)....for horizontal crank .004"-.006" Intake.....Exhaust is .006"-.011" Hope this helps . Here is a briggs engine specs chart..can';t find the Chinese engine listed anywhere

Need a labeled carburetor diagram so I can synchronize, clean, and adjust the carbs. Also need to steps to change the diaphram adn check the timing chain.My engine seems to be running rich, how do I fix...

The site below has got all but the tappet clearances covered. You will need a service manual for the correct valve clearances or a friendly word to your dealer if you want to do it yourself.

Front and rear carbies' are depicted in exploded view form with all parts named and numbered. The diaphrams and idle adjustments are clearly shown. All sections of the bike are covered.

As for the timing chains, they are self adjusting and when adjustment runs out, the chains must be replaced.

Richness is governed by the size of the carby jets, smaller numbers are leaner.

How to adjust values and timeing chain

The cam chain has an automatic adjuster, you cannot adjust it maually. If the camchain is rattling badly it probably needs to be changed.... a big job.
The valves on your bike have old type tappets. These can be adjusted by anyone who has done early model cars or bike engines. You will have to find out what the clearances are. Then it's simply a case of taking off the tank and rocker covers. The gaskets are reuseable
