Not sure about clearance levels, but can tell you there is no English manual for the XJR 400 - only Japanese. Try the XJR owners club. It's full of troubleshooting questions answered in the forums.
Hope this helped

The site link below will give you the info you need from a free download.
Select your make, model and year and download a free manual...it's a big one, about 26Mb.
Then get yourself some metric feeler guages and go for it!

SOURCE: noise like valve adjustment too
Valve adjustment is not a simple task, the valve clearances will need "shimming" these are thin pieces of metal to take up the gap or slack between valve and rocker arm. You will need service manual and some feeler gauges, and purchase a set of shims
