My 1990 vt1100 shadow has a loud tap in the top of the motor could any1 guess whats wrong please

the hydraulic valves tappets do not get oil, you have to clean the oil passages, try with oil flusher (seafoam), you can clean the tappets manually, but you have to get the engine off. Some times the problem can be warn cam chain, so, check them also.

If it died while riding and would not start even with a boost chances are the charging system is not working or the battery is not accepting the charge.
Make sure battery is full of water(distilled and at the upper line in each cell)and charge the battery. Start the bike and use a multi meter and ckeck the voltage at the batery terminalls(red+) (black -) and if the charging system is working you should have between 12.5 and 15 volts. If it is at 12volts or under than you need to look at your charging system. If te system chack out ok @12-15 volts than I would invest in a new battery. I recomend a yuasa battery.
I own the same bike as you and never had an issue with the yuasa ( i won't run anything else)

Hope this helps
