Ok. I took the head of my bike to replace the gasket...and I was unaware of the little valve pads/shims when I turned the head over to look at it and several of them fell out. I put them back in but no chance I put them back in exactly as they came out.do now my bike barely runs and I hear a terrible tapping noise now. My question is this the problem and if so how do I fix it

Tear back into it before you run the engine anymore.
Use a gauge to measure the gaps and shim according to te specs in the service manual.

Also, make sure it's actually the valves and not your cam chain tensioner.
If you didn't put that in right it will make a similar sound to the valves.

Ok I'll check the tensioner, but I do not have a feeler gauge. Is there a video showing me more about this?

If you arent sure how to do this procedure, your better off taking the machine to a good dealer that you trust, there are measurements in hundreths of a millimeter that have to be adhered to.

Anyone looking for a 99-02 head with brand new valves and two sets of springs give me a shout. Also comes with two shim kits.
