Question about 2001 Harley Davidson FLSTF - FLSTFI Fat Boy
Additional "sounds" or "noise" from modified motors are fairly "normal" when the engines are at full operating temperatures. Changing you brand or weight of engine oil might have a slight effect in sound reduction, but if everything else seems okay then I'd just ride and enjoy it and keep an "ear" on things.

ADJUSTMENT Although it is sometimes possible to reuse an old cylinder head cover gasket, in most cases it makes more sense to purchase a new one before beginning the procedure. Some vehicles may require the use of silicone sealant either with or without a new cover gasket. For more details, please refer to the cylinder head cover procedures in Engine & Engine Overhaul of this repair guide and refer to the gasket manufacturer's instructions.
