Question about 1987 Honda VT 1100 C Shadow
You need to get your valves adjusted. When an engine is new, all your parts are not worn. As time goes on, mechanical parts break down. your valves are riding on your camshaft, and eventually wear down. You need to re-shim your valves to maintain the clearance that it had when it was new. You can do it yourself, but you are better taking it to a mechanic. They have the right tools. Shouldn't cost too much. This is a common procedure. Dirt bikes have this same problem, mostly because of the high RPMs and engine break-down is more rapid.
