This relates to a 2003 Vulcan 1500 Classic Carb version. This bike sat for almost a year without being run. When I started it I heard a loud clicking sound from the rear cylinder. The sound diminishes somewhat after the bike has been run for awhile but returns when cold. If I were to guess I would say it's probably a bad hydraulic lifter. Any opinions? Has anyone experienced this problem?

What oil are you running? How many miles?
Could be a partially blocked HLA, or just a dirty lifter.
Need a little more info.
