As some of you that follow my build thread know that i recently purchased a stage 4 kit. Well ill start from day one on it.
I installed the kit along with a set of Woods 777 cams and woods lifters. I put the screamin eagle perfect fit pushrods in it that came with the stage 4 kit. Everything seemed fine by turning it over by hand. A few days go by and i take it to my buddies where the tins are getting painted to start putting it together, I got it far enough where i could try to start it and the motor just spun over like it had no compression. Well i started checking things like spark and fuel. It came down to the pushrods being too long and holding the valves open. So, i take a trip to the local harley dealer and buy some screamin eagle adjustable pushrods. Get them installed and the bike starts up real quick but is rattling in the topend. All what seems to be coming from the back cylinder. Well, I immediately kill it thinking i ruined something and called Fuel Moto. They tell me that the lifters need to be primed up and its normal.
I start the bike back up and let it run for a few minutes and burn all the finger prints off of it. The noise never went away or got quieter. I adjust on the pushrods once again just to double check, everything seemed good. Let it sit for a few minutes while i put some other stuff together to come back, start it, and still noise.
So, i pull the rocker box off the rear cylinder just to verify nothing is hitting and i turned the motor over with the starter with no plugs in it and it sounds perfectly fine. Nothing hits or anything. Im seriously stumped at this point. I know noone can fix it over the computer but does anyone have ANY idea what my noise is? Its definately in the valve train cause its fast and gets louder as i rev it. Also, the bike seems to run damn good other than the noise. I revved it a few times and it seems to have really good power but the noise. Thanks in advance.
