Question about 2002 Harley Davidson FXSTD - FXSTDI Deuce
Your bike has the TwinCam 88 motor which is rubber mounted to the bike. The slight ticking noise is coming from the tappets in the cylinder heads and is normal. When you are downshifting, are you going down in steps (5th to 4th then release the clutch and let it slow, then 4th to 3rd release the clutch and let it slow, etc.) or are you just running through them all at once (pressing down on the shifter without releasing the clutch until you are in 1st and then letting it out)?
There is some "clunking" that occurs in the tranny that is NORMAL but if the "clunk" is more pronounced, it could have something to do with the way you downshift...downshifting in steps as described above is the best way to downshift. If you can give me more info, please respond here so I can help you further.
