Question about 2004 Harley Davidson FLSTF - FLSTFI Fat Boy
Usually the ticking comes from the exhuast or heat shields, this is usual. You can even get ticking from the fins and parts attached to the jugs.
Any thing that you can do to keep the engine running cooler will help to extend the life of your motor.
Don't let it idle for long periods of time, talk to your dealer about high end oils that will reduce friction in the motor, and adding a oil cooler will help lower operating temps.
Something that you can do is, make sure that the heat shields are tightened down, even shifting the shields just a bit can make a change.
Please rate me, if this has been helpful, and/or contact me back with any other questions that you might have.
Have a great day!
