    It looks like HD didn't have actual valve clearance for intakes listed until 1918. I think Exhaust was .005 in '14
    In '16 they reference using a sheet of paper... and no play for intakes
    You can use the '18 specs if it helps but you might need to adjust slightly until you find the best gap depending on your type of riding.
    Here are 3 pictures from HD Operating Maintenance & Specifications manual for '14, '16 & '18.
