I have used Waggot Cams in NSW and they were also very good.

I use Tighe cams in Queensland and they have always done a great job.

Thanks for the input from members.  I took the bike to a well-regarded mechanic, and he thought that the most likely cause was from a worn cam lobe.  It looks like I'll have to pull the engine out and strip it all down again to verify and remedy.  Is there somewhere that can do a good job of reclaiming worn camshafts and followers?

Has this one been up for sale before? It looks familar and is in nice condition.
I reckon just the exhaust out here in OZ would be worth the current bid of nearly 2400 bucks.

Not worn upper rocker shafts?

 Excuse me if we've been over some of this stuff.
Rocker shafts are worn but have now been swapped (In<>Ex)

CXPhreak, I firmly believe that I installed the camshaft thrust washer.

Thanks Seagrass.  I neglected to inspect the camshaft whilst the engine was out.  In my inexperience, I would have thought that the load on the camshaft was predominantly downwards but cyclical switching in the directions of the two sets of pushrods.  Could wear on the front and/or rear housings produce the noise I'm hearing?   

I do not believe the tapping sound could be caused by wear in the camshaft journals, more likely to be a camshaft lobe or something else.

Maybe CX Phreak may have some other ideas.
