Mine does the samething, im not for sure but i think it's the fuel injection! But what ever it is it must be part of the package.

i think it is the fuel injector pulse i hear it too and if you take the air cleaner off a throttle bodied car it sounds exactly the same

My understanding is that it is part of the emissions. Some people have reported that using 87 octane, instead of the expensive stuff, reduces the sound. On my bike it did. There is also a tick when you release the throttle, but I am not sure you can hear that when it is cruising.

As far as louder pipes and wives, ear plugs are twenty five cents a pair. Pipes, $600.

i had a ticking noise on my 95 classic that drove me totally crazy, seriously this is true, it turned out to be the chrome fuel cover vibrating, it only did it while moving and sounded mechanical ?
