Default Slight ticking noise...

I'm new to Victory so I'm not sure this is normal. I think it is, but wanted to check. It's an 03 I just picked up with 8k miles and all stock.

You really need to tell us more when you say slight ticking.

Might be your chain adjusters. Some times oil will drain out of them when they sit. So when you start bike they will tick till they fill up with oil again. No big deal as long as they stop ticking.

I'm being told by many that it's normal so the moderators can delete this thread.

Yep. Sounds normal to me too. Don't delete this thread. It will help someone else wondering the same thing down the line.

I have an actual ticking in my 04. I don't even give it much attention since it runs so good. Air cooled motors make noises. They don't have the water jacket to muffle a lot of the noise water cooled motors make.
