Default Lifters+w cams

Hello,i wish health to everyone. I was getting a lot of ticking noise from my 2006 883R.Yesterday i changed lifters(hylift Johnson) and i upgrade my cams from D to W.Pushrods and everything was clean inside the motor, but i still hear a bit of ticking noise from the heads.Is this a normal thing for harley motors? Thanks everyone.

Probably just the rocker tick that quite common. Mine does it.
Take a look at DK's rocker lockers.

Sorted? Was it the "normal" ticking or something else?

Rocker lockers work for their intended purpose and do cut down the common ticking associated with the rockers/bolts.
Johnson Hylifts are great lifters and cheaper than S&S, Fueling, or any other premium lifter. I use the 2313SE with directional oiling in my 103". Harley actually used these briefly til going elsewhere to save money. Go figure.

When I changed to W cams I had to change my ignition module because of timing issues due to higher cranking pressure. I installed the Screaming Eagle XL1200 module 31785-04 which completely resolved the ignition timing issues.
