I thought it was more because the vrod was overhead cam, therefore no hydraulic lifters...

it is. overhead cams need adjusting while the old hydraulic lifter don't. vrod is a "new" style engine, all the "old" harley engines still rely on old tech.

hey, you're on the southeast?? i'll check clearances for $400!! seriously, the years i've owned bikes, i finally checked clearances for the 1st time a couple months ago and all i can say is if you take the time to do it once, you'll think its easy. and you 'll think $400 is REALLY high for a basic bit of maintenance.
