Try searching for a pdf of the manual for your year. Its not too bad. You will still probably wish it was a turbine engine so all you would have to do is r&r and send it out to be rebuilt, for close to million bucks!

7k miles is nothing for a R6 engine. the earliest you need to check them is 26K.
mine had 31k when I checked it and they were fine.

the tick is normal for a yamaha.

The first recommended interval for valve adjustment on your R-6 is 24,000 miles, the sound you are hearing is probably not valve lash and is probably nothing to worry about.
