All you need need to check your valves is a feeler gauge that you can get at any auto parts store. The valves cannot be adjusted in the sense of turning a nut or a screw. You have to install spacer shims which requires removing the cam shafts. You will need at the very least a torque wrench and a service manual.

This link is for setting the clearance of a CRF450 but it will illustrate the process.
