Question about 2002 Harley Davidson FXDL Dyna Low Rider
Depends. You will get some valve noise as the bike gets older, however, this noise is only noticable at Idle. If you are getting a loud enough noise at crouse speed to the point of being annoying then the chances are you have a lifter that is starting to collapse. This is upper end noise only. If you are getting a lower end noise and have at least 30,000 miles on the bike. Chances are the valve drive chain tensioners are going. This is a known problem with twin cam engines. I have two twin cams and had to replace the tensioners on both. My advice to you if this is the problem is to go to Gear Drive cams. I did it without any regrets. I have a quicker power response and was able to increase my rev. limit speed by almost 200 rpms. The down side according to some is a wining noise. I don't get any noise I can hear over my Python 3 pipes. In my opinion the benefits out weigh the noise. Without having the bike in front of me this is the best I can suggest.
