Ah, . Pretty much like you described, my valves were dialed in but there was a noise coming form the left side of the bike. I'm not sure I would describe it as clicking, more of a tapping. When I pictured in my mind that the cam chain might be loose, that was the sound I pictured in my mind.

I took me about two hours to do the job, but 75% of the time was spent on one step, hooking the spring. For whatever reason, I had difficulties. The two subsequent times I helped friends do it, I had no problem and did the job in an hour.
