How can u tell when u need to adjust the valve's? There's a little clicking noise when i'm just cruising, but when i accelerate hard or go real slow it goes away. any suggestions?

Valves tighten up and become quiet when they need adjusting. You will notice a power loss and starting issues. Since you just got the bike it might be a good experience for you to adjust them or at least check them.

well what would cause this noise i'm hearing? It's a clicking noise, but not bad. I just don't let noise's go to long without fixing them on my bike's.

The valves are easy to check, so I would go ahead and check them. I check my about every 300-400 miles.
