there are a whole lot of causes for any top end noise,rocker lockers will only correct rocker shafts contacting the bolts (i use a set screw thru the rocker support to correct this & been doing so since the EVO`s came out) i wouldnt wait till winter to at least adjust the valves (witch anyone should be able to do) with the p/rods in & adjusted there shouldnt be any "movement" of rocker arms.with the crap inner bearings & lifters,any noise should never be put off till you have time or whatever,look into it now (BTW,octane level of your fuel will have nothing to do with any valve train "ticking",it can cuase detionation,and i would really hope you can tell the difference between detionation & valve train noise)
Hey don't always assume that someone knows the difference,and midgrade gas not much better than low grade.harleys don't like that cheap gas.if you read his first post he stated valve noise at high rpms.
