SOURCE: valve noise 2006 road king
Hello redevil67...This is normal for the HD engine, it going to have valve train, top end noise at some point, some as early as 2000 miles. If you take it to the dealer they will try to sell you on worn tappets...key word here SELL..I've seen this many times, dealer replaces componets, 2000 miles later the noise returns.
These are hydraulic valves and as you probably know they operate at zero lash. Personaly, i feel that the problem is that the cams are not hardened properly or machined incorrectly.. When the leading edge of the cam lobes wear to a strange profile it tends to snap the lifter up in the lifter bore. This causes the rest of the valve train to rattle. You hear the noise on top but the culprit makin it, is the cams..Many chose to go with an aftermarket cam, such as an andrews...Another suggestion, is to switch oils. Don't know what you are useing now, but i'm not a fan of dino oil. As the temperature builds the more an oil is stressed. Lucas full synthetic 20w-50 or Mobil1 15w-50 are both excellent for anti-wear and long term protection.
I hope this helps, please rate me a fixya and good luck with your bike.

I had the same problem with my RK 2001 with 34K and original pads, when I changed the pads the problem went away

SOURCE: 1994 road king, gas seeping
Are you sure it's gasoline? If you have gasoline seeping from under your front cylinder, you do have problems. If it's gasoline, it's probably coming from your carb and dripping down to right behind your front tappet block making it look like it's coming from the front cylinder.
The next time you park the bike. Take a paper towel or a piece of newspaper and put it under the carb. Let it set for a while and come back to see if you see any "drips" on the paper.
Now if it is your carb, the most likely place for it to leak is the accelerator pump diaphragm. If the original diaphragm is still in the carb since '94, it's probably got a hole in it. At any rate, it's time to have your carb completely gone though. This is a job for an experience mechanic. If you wish to attempt it yourself, you need to purchase a service manual because it is far too extensive for me to type out here. And, a picture is worth a thousand words in this case.

1. Check brake pad thickness.
2. Check brake disk thickness.
3. Check and bleed the brakes, making sure you open and thighten all fittings in that system.
4. When you bleed the brakes, look for a good squirt when you hit the brakes with the top off.
5. If there isnt a squirt, rebuild the master cylinder.
I bet its one of those issues, but, do the easiest first.
