Default knock!!!

hey guys im new to the forum, but to the issue on hand, took the bike out for a little ride, was at a stop light and as most everyone kinda revs and ease's into the gas on take off,, well after i did that i got a nice sounding tick tick tick tick,,
im thinking its a rod, the oil level is not completly full but it is well within operating range, any input would be greatly appriciated!

lifters tick,rods doesnt sound too serious.did it get louder or did it stop eventually?i ran a 98 electra glide for 2 yrs thinking it held 3 qts of oil,and never had a problem.i dont think the oil level has anything to do with your noise.

What year bike and size motor, I never assume but guessing its a 1995, the 96 has a loud valve train they all tick if you have an 88 change the lifters check the cam chain and tensioner.
