I have a 2012 Nomad and it will sometimes do the tap, especially right before time to change out the oil. It will only do it for a few minutes after first startup though. I have owned three bikes with hydraulic lifters and all of them tapped to some degree when the oil was ready to be changed but only for a short time except for a Honda that tapped alot but never gave me any problems. Gave it to a friend at 89,000 miles and he kept on riding! You can run some seafoam in your oil for a while then do an oil change and see if that cleans out your lifter.
