    Thank you! I did a ton of research and spoke with a ton of sales people for specs and technical people to understand why before I did all this work. Unfortunately the machine work was great, but his diagnostics and measurements weren't on my rockers or I wouldn't still have this clock ticking on crack sitting on top of my engine. The only thing I did different from factory specs of a 117 crate engine was bored it over by .05 and install Carillo Pistons due to the jugs being egg shaped. Aside from That, the exact specs that S&S gave me were used and I'm sure as soon as I figure out this rocker issue, I'll be more then happy with her.

    Finally got the tapatalk app to work.. So this is what s&s suggested, never thought about doing a set screw, thanks for that advice John, I'm sure that will do the trick and I'll be good to go. I'll do it this weekend and let you all know [​IMG]

    Dam Kel, that looks like a primitive fix but if it works it works.

    I’ve got mine apart right now to replace a leaking rear rocker box gasket, tranny leak, clutch slip/drag, and install a .585 cam :D Great timing on this thread as the constant ticking was driving me nuts too. I thought it was coming from the connecting rods/lifters. Going to take the rockers into work and thread in a set screw to lock the rocker shafts as suggested. Spring is coming and this riding season is going to be even better!

    Did you also grind a flat on the hardened rocker shaft where the set screw contacts the shaft?

    Yes. Locked the shaft position by installing the 5/16” bolt back in its hole. Used 13/64” end mill to drill the hole for the set screw and milled slightly into the shaft to ensure solid engagement.

    That's a solid looking repair, and worth trying. Like Eric said, would be interesting to see how it holds up over time. Nice work Steveo.

    Kel, are you going to do it or ride for now and get to it later? I’ve got a slight tic but not enough to pull it apart just for that. Will be a must do if I have to take it apart for another gasket set though.

    Definitely have it good to go for unleashed. Keep us posted on how it goes. I’m chasing a carb issue now getting ready for bike-week. Talked to Ker and a local tech so few things to look at tomorrow.

    Thanks guys. Suggestion came from this forum so glad to share how it works out for me. Would have never imagined this could be the source of that tic. One thing I noticed though was out of four rocker shafts, only one was snug where the bolt should lock the shaft in place. The other three holes were pretty sloppy. Shafts are definitely locked now. Im looking forward to seeing if this issue is resolved myself.
