Can anyone let me know how to check the valve clearance on a 03 BF50?

That is just dangerous info .Valve clearances get tighter as your engine wears in and a tight valve will offer up hard starts and uneven idle.A tight valve makes no noise at all.

I agree with Hondon.
by the time they start tapping,if the get loose, odds are you will damage a cam, if they get tight it leads to burned valves due to the hot combustion gasses under pressure will erode the face and seat.
sounds like you need a service manual and a reading session before a wrenching session to gain an understanding of the valvetrain and how and why it functions.
good luck and keep posting
