SOURCE: engine noise
If you dd not torque the front sprocket down correctly you could have an issue. If this is a new noise then be concerned, if this has progressed over time, then it is more than likely just the bike loosening up. Which is normal...but loud, could this be pre-detonation, did you make the correct adjustments to your MAP? Check you push rod adjustment with the bike cold, I mean Artic overnight not running cold.

SOURCE: push rod cover installation
What they mean by the base is the base circle of the cam.So at TDCC you are at base with little pressure on the rockers,so they can be removed.So if you have only removed the covers there is no need for anything except to put your cover back on.

Testimonial: "Exactly what I needed to know. It was broken down to very simple tems. Thanks a ton"
SOURCE: I have the rocker boxes
Your engine is on the compression stroke when the piston is at it's highest point in the cylinder with both valves closed. As you turn the engine over. you will see one pushrod go up (exhaust stroke) and back down the the other pushrod will go up (intake stroke) and back down. Now the engine is on the compression stroke and TDC is when the piston comes to the top of its travel. The piston is at the top and both valves at the spring are not compressed. When the spring is NOT compressed, the valve is closed. On the compression stroke, both valves must be closed.

Testimonial: "Thank You for your promp answer, the problem was that I didn't have the rocker arms on so I wasn't able to watch the springs, only the push rods."
