Does anyone hear a fast ticking sound coming from what seems like under the front part of the gas tank at cruising speeds?

Sounds like a BOMB to me ;D Seriously I've got it to, but no need to worry. I had it on my other bike to. Its coming from the rad. Next time you hear it, check it out. One of the things with having a rad on a bike. Check out other makes that have rads. Sometimes its loader or softer depending on the bike. Solution to the problem......... LOAD PIPES ;D That's why Harleys have load pipes. To cover all the noises they make.

yea those motors rattle themselves to death...
