do the old garden hose trick take you a three foot piece of garden hose and put it up to one ear ,it works better if you use an earplug on them ear without the hose ,get your bike up to temp and when the ticking starts use the loose end of the hose to listen to various places on the engine i.e. the front head the rear head ,the ACCT's and the transmission and when you hear it considerably louder in one location check for problems there first,be sure to hold the free end of the hose pretty close to the section you are checking,with a little practice you will learn to isolate noises to a pretty small area,Don't panic because you hear noise everywhere you stick that hose but listen for the specific noise you are trying to isolate,the other noises are just things turning round and round an going up and down as normal ,that you normally don't hear for exhaust noise,poor people have poor ways an just cause granpa did it that way doesn't make wrong,we all need a little low tech ever now and then,Denny
