What else did they do? Did they use quick install pushrods? If so, may be they are not adjusted correctly, or one may have backed off. I would take it back and have them make it right. Should not have gotten any noisier, and the vibration is not right either.

If they removed the pipes to get to the cam cover theymay have them mis aligned. That would give you vibration, the ticking could be lifter noise.

When I put the 204s into my bike, I did not tighten one of the adjustable push rods good enough, It was ticking like mad, thought I was going to break something, did not run it much.

If the pushrods are adjustable and have loosened, you will want to have them looked at really quickly. It will get worse really fast.

When you first start it or shortly after feel the Push Rod Tubes and see if you have a rub there.

Exhaust leak on that front head, even small, makes a racket.

I like the heat shields and exhaust/muffler brackets/bolts on this kind of noise.

After that would have to start looking at push rod adjustment and/or lifter problem or just the new "they all sound like that" sound you get with the new cams:whistle:
