While an oil change is recommended after every 2000 kilometres of driving, the same rule does not apply for tappet clearance. Riding experts can go up to 7000 kilometres without a tappet clearance adjustment. It is only necessary if you feel the overall performance of the motorbike is not optimum or degrading.
