    Took out my 06 SE Fatboy today and started to hear slight noise coming from front top end of engine got worse in a few miles started taping, skiping,shut it off brought it back to the shop,took the front valve cover off,can't see any thing wrong, but I did find some small metal flakes in the oil on top. There were engine mods done at local dealer before I bought it, I think a stage 1 kit CNC heads,cams,throtle body mod. etc. any ideas?

    i had a tapping noise on my softail, turns out who ever changed the cam , had messed up putting the pushrods back and they were not ajusted right,. So if with the work you got done ,has needed to get the pushrods taken out ,check there ajusted properly.
