I did my adjustables 2 and a half full turns. You want the pushrods to be able to spin, but have no side to side movement.

Unless the clacking drown's out the radio.............. ride it!!


Seriously though, it depends on the brand. Most are 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 turns.

Ironheads use hydraulic lifters? If so, then never.

Otherwise, turns will vary based on brand due to varying threads per inch.

As to how oftwn, dunno

i now notice a noise when going left hopefully it's a wheel bearing , also i thought i should do valve adjustment to keep from burning valves like on older cars

Check your front tire for cupping.

Sounds like a bad bearing buzz in a left turn on my RoadKing and it'll be cupped on the left side.

No idea why but it'll cup about the same time the rear wears out.


Been unable to find anything wrong.
