Hello all. I keep hearing about the lifters ticking and engine noise. In fact my Chieftan makes some noise. But I have not heard or read about any engine failures. Is this true? Has any one heard of any engine, valve, lifter, cam, or push rod failures on these engines?

I mostly just hear it at idle Harry. Bike has 3100 miles on it. I have friend with a Vintage that has about 8000 miles on his and he said that it quieted down about 5000 miles.

EDIT Maybe if I turn my rock music off I could hear more. But what fun is that. LOL

If had a Chieftain would definitely want to be hearing my tunes .. :) Hope this all works out for you mej .. When first switched from HD to Victory sounded a little strange until got past 3,000 Miles and then started to realize was the nature of the beast .. 40,000 trouble free miles later not too concerned any more ..
