Others here Know a lot more than I do but I can tell you a couple of things. Firstly, some valve noise is normal. Secondly, If you want to check your clearances it's not necessary to take apart the whole top end. Also, I'm not so sure about that 4000 mile interval. Once they are set they rarely move and it takes a lot more than 4000 miles worth of wear and tear to significantly effect clearances.

If you are worried about it by all means check it out. It's really not a big deal.

I would certainly check them for peace of mind since you don't know any history. Some info from the wKB   V-Star 1100 Wiki Knowledge Base - Valves (google.com)
