    I started the bike the next morning and no noise,you guy's are not going to believe this. i went to breakfest with a friend of my mind. I didn't say anything about the lifter or rocker noise,I ask him if his 02 roadking ever made any rocker or lifter noise and he said that when he trl it to street vib.he unloaded off the trl. and started it and it made rocker noise for about a minute then went away.but has not done it sense.So why would trl. a bike for awhile make it make rocker or lifter noise when you start it.Is their anyway that a lifter could bleed down from all the bouncing around.After all all i did is have it dyno'd and trl. it home about a's
