Lifters/rockers noisy when hot

So I bought a 2014 cct a few months ago currently has Lloyd's cams, intake, timing wheel, power commander, and exhaust mods runs like a raped ape and I love it but I have noticed at about 2600rpm to 3500 it sounds like she is coming apart when it's hot out. Now I rode it this morning to work nice cool 45° and has the typical tick but nothing more. Anyone have any suggestions as to what could be going on? I'm lost and tired of convincing myself everytime I ride it hot that I'm going to have to rebuild lol

Timing wheel only adjusts timing up to 2500rpm then its on the power commander from there? Correct me if Im wrong please. OIL is Rotella T5 15w40 only 400ish miles on it and I've tried 87-93 octane with no difference in sound. Last oil change I cut open oil filter to check for metal and thankfully nothing did see a little bronze in oil assuming that's from clutch material when it slipped on a hard top end pull
From my understanding wheel is an adjustment at all RPM. Power commander can only offset the wheel adjustment above 2500. So you might have too much timing if wheel adds timing and power commander also adds timing.

As we all keep saying the motor is probably fine. Just need to cut back the timing because it's likely pinging that you are hearing "all the time."

Polaris had a recall for a brake line and listed issue was the clip melting during excessive pinging. Hopefully you had that recall done. Check on your rear brake line.

Came from a Honda VTX 1300 to the Vic.
Both are noisy sewing machines.
