Tick tick

So I’m kinda new to this but I have a 2005 yamaha v star 1100 that has just started to tick. It seems to come from the front top cylinder but the valves have been recently replaced. Does anyone else have this issue? I’ve read a lot that it’s just normal or at least I’m not the only one with this issue?

There’s a solid chance that the emissions air line has a leak in it. It’s the chrome tube that comes from the left side cover around to the exhaust on both cylinders. They rust from the inside out and tick really bad. I thought mine had a bad valve or started to develop a knock. The sound is very deceiving. They’re not real cheap but fairly easy to replace
