im hearing a ticking sound from the top of the engine. I would guess its the pushrods or something. Am i correct in assuming that and is that an ok sound? dont want to be paranoid but this is my first v-twin and its ALL new to me.

I hear the same in mine. I never noticed it before because I wore a full face helmet but I bought a half for cruising around town and now notice it. It must be the pushrods i'm figuring.

yes, it is the push rods. they will sound like that from new.. actually it is usually worse the first couple hundred miles.

The ticking is normal, but if you burn one of the synthetic oils like Amosoil or Mobil 1 it will lessen the ticking to a minimal to the point of almost eliminating the sound.
