Question about 2002 Harley Davidson FLSTF - FLSTFI Fat Boy
What you're hearing is the rocker arm opening the valves. This is normal operating noise.
Your Harley is an older design pushrod operated engine. Unlike most other motorcycles engines, Harley does not use overhead cams in any of their bikes other than the V-Rod. Additionally, there is no sound deadening material inside the rocker box covers. Although the engine is equipped with hydraulic tappets, there is a bit of running clearance in the rocker arms and their shafts they run on.
In short, this is not unusual and your Harley will run for many miles. If you can hear that clicking, it sounds like you need to take the baffles out of that V&H pipe.
To see a diagram of your engine, go to BikeBandit.com. , click on OEM and choose your bike or any Big Twin of that year.
