Just got a 2000 classic 1500 fi, after riding a zx12R a few years back this thing like riding a semi truck, so far like it there is higher lifter noise than I expected but don't sound abnormal it does have the cam chain extenders. I changed oil to rotella T6 5w-40 syn wish now I would have used a good 50w after reading some posts on here, anyway I am back up and riding.

Plenty of noise in the engine of that model...sounds like a dozen hammer heads are clanking around in the crank case....I believe it does not require valve adjustments. I had a Nomad for awhile and loved it but I too old for it and so have moved to smaller bikes that are easier to handle for me.
Welcome....Love the fuel injection.
