OK, here it is. I have an intermittent ticking noise coming from my 98 Fatboy, I have S&S lifters with the limited travel kit with about 6k on them, 35k on the motor. I also have an auto chain tensioner in the primary. It sounds like its coming from the top end. But you know how sound travels. The sound is just now and then. Sometimes when the motor is hot and sometimes when the motor is cold. Lifter's not pumping up or staying that way? I would think if it was rockers or guides it would be all the time. When i say intermittent I mean every once in a while like once a week. But it has happened when I have been riding a while and the motor is warm. I changed the oil and the tappet screen is clean.
