2001 Rebel 250 Valve Noise?

I just got a 2001 Rebel 250 with 1900 miles on it a few weeks ago. I am curious if some fairly quiet but still noticeable valve ticking is normal. I have heard that these bikes have a slightly more noticeable valve noise but I just want to make sure before I decide to go on any long or hard rides that I don't need to worry about valve adjustments or cam chain tension.

The engine is a little noisy when the valves are properly adjusted. If it gets quiet, it's probably time to check the adjustment.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!
