I posted a while back about my ticking issue with they 1100 ACE. After comments and reading other posts on the board I realized I had overfilled the oil and most likely put the wrong type/weight of oil in. So yesterday I stopped and picked up some Rotella-T 15w 40 and did an oil change and made sure it was at the proper level. Rode for about 30 minutes in 100 deg weather :-( She ran smooth and no lifter noise. Thanks to everyone who responded to my initial post regarding this. Looking forward to many miles of riding.
