I have a 1999 Shadow Tourer that also has a right side tick. this tick has been discussed quite a bit on the Tourer forum (HSATF). If the ticking is coming from the lower right is usually caused by weak springs in the clutch primary gear assembly. Supposedly the primary gear ticking is not harmful to the bike and some owners have reported having the "tick" for thousands of miles. Some have replaced theirs using the primary gear assembly for the Aero which is supposed to have stronger springs. unfortunately Honda will not sell just the springs so you have to purchase the gear assembly for about $175.00. I replaced mine with the Aero gear set about 4,000 miles ago and the tick is already back, have reservations about spending another $175.
