I have an 06 VN900. I have 65000 miles on it and it runs great... Well except for the valves need adjusting. I can't get them adjusted for about a week. Will this damage the bike if I ride for a week?

That sound is pretty normal on the vn900's. Valve clearence sevice is till 15k miles. A good oil will help alot reducing the engine noise. I would stay away from 20-50 and use 10-40 or 15-40. I once tried 20-50 and the tapping became loud and after 1000 miles I changed the oil bac to 10-40 and the tapping went away. Now running Rotella 15-40 and no noises or issues of any kind.
