That is nasty,broken belt I think,one should make changing belts before cranking after setting a long time.

Is the video with the bike on the centerstand,I wonder if the driveshaft might have failed and that’s what you hear.

Look around the alternator area,the rubber dampers may have failed and it makes the sound sound like it’s coming from elsewhere,pull the clutch in and try that

The lifter lost its prime,put some sea foam in the oil and rune it,might reprime,looks like it’s not a unknown on 1500,is your oil need changed,most likely hav3 to replace the lifter

huum I don’t quite understand why a valve would be bent,if it loses lifter the spring would keep the vavlve closed?

So which one was it🤷🏻‍♀️
sea foam into the carb wouldn’t have any effect on-a lifter but unless it was an intake valve I don’t see where it would have any effect on the valve,seems like it just fixed itself by letting it run
