Check your tach and make sure its not just making a noise at certain RPM's. may not be the speed as much as the reverb from the engine at dif rpm's.

oh, and what kind of clicking, be a little more specific.

your tach is electronic, if I recall correctly.
If you roll forward at 2-5 mph and tap-tap-tap the front brakes, is the noise still there?
If so, look for a loose wiring connector or your steering head bearings.
2 of my TLs suffered from loose headlight brackets, try that too.
My front race rotors were REALLY loud at low speeds, in city traffic. Are yours stock?
Also, check your chain as it is a very tight left side bend on those TL's.

reason i said check the tach, is that I had some problems w/ rattling that only occured around 3-4 rpms. it turned out to be the frequency of the engine revving was just right to rattle some screws that needed to be tightened and some rubber grommets that needed to be replaced.

doesnt seem to be his problem though.

Chain and sprocket noise? If your chain is loose it can make a clicking noise. Especially if the sprockets are worn.

Clicking can be bearings as well if they are shot. Check them next time you have your wheels off.

It's probably the scissor gears on the end of your cams. Does it sound like light tapping? All tillers have that sound.
