Default Valve Adjustment

My engine is ticking and i know its my valves so i need to ajust them and i dont want to take it to the dealer. Can someone please tell me how to adjust them and tell me what tools i will need before i get into it and find out i dont have something i need. Also is it ok to run it if the valves are not in check?

Tool needed:
10mm wrench
RED locitie
Allen keys
Feeler guages

Look online for a warrior service manual, it will cover all the steps you need to do.

Just because it ticks a little doesnt mean it needs adjusting, its good to check tho, i just adjusted mine and the tick got quieter but it didnt disappear. Make sure you get the right feeler guages, intake side should measure .06-.10mm and exhaust should measure .16-.20mm I believe, Somebody correct me if I'm wrong. Look for feeler guages that will work with that cause i got the wrong size the first time I bought some.
