Hi valve clearence settings are .004 thou, You need to have the engine on top dead centre and then loosen the locking nuts and adjust accordingly whilst sliding a feelr gauge in between the top of the valve stem and the rocker arm. But dont forget to retighten the locking nut up afterwards.

Fixing the valves setting on a 125cc clipic radar motor cycle

We would check to see if this is a Honda clone or copy 125cc engine. If so use those steps and specs but only if you can not get a manual which seems unlikely.
All valve adjustments are similar on overhead valve four stroke engines. I have not bothered to look but have to ask if you did a web search for a video showing how?
I am assuming this is a four cycle engine and not a two cycle engine. Two cycle engines do not use valves. Two strikes use ports and reed valves that you can not adjust.
Next time add a good up close pic of the engine. Especially the top end.

How do I adjust the valves on a Briggs and Stratton Intek V Twin

Remove the valve covers look up your valve clearance specs turn the engine by hand until the piston is at top dead center then go 1/4 turn past that and then put a feeler gage for the valve clearance you need for that valve and snug up the adjustment nut. Check your oil when your done some oil will spill out when opening the valve cover.

Intake and exhaust valves need adjustment. Intake .004, exhaust .012.
look for wear or loose rocker arm bolt before adjusting valves.

94 Saturn Twin Cam Valve Adjustment

Valve slash and clearance adjustments should only be performed by certified mechanics and is not a job for the garage or novice hands on type.
If you still decide to proceed, I suggest you get your hands on a maintenance manual which will list the procedure step by step, including proper torque values.
