    Engine clicking

    Anyone experiencing engine clicking on 2017 SGS? Not very loud, but consistent thru all gears. Dealer service manager says it is normal with the Milwaukee 8.

    Just curious, if anyone else is experiencing. I didn't have this type of noise on my last H-D.

    For those of you who are concerned about valve train noise in the new M8, this from my knowledgeable HD mechanic:
    The stock air cleaner box was designed around 3 main functions-
    > Filtering outside air intake.
    > Muffling engine/transmission noises.
    > Capturing any oil mist that's not sucked back into the engine for combustion.

    This makes perfect sense to me as I noticed my friends engine seems a lot more noisy since he added the aftermarket A/C box.

    I hear it in mine. There also seems to be a low whizzing sound at low speeds too. I notice it when I first pull out of the driveway, but seem to forget about it later.
