Question, My wife has a 2007 Shadow Saber with low mileage and it has developed a tapping in what seems like the rear head. We have had it in the shop and worked on but it is still happening. Has anyone had the same problem???

Haven't heard of this before. Maybe check other forums to see if anyone else had issues like that. Does the bike seem to preform differently?
bike runs but sounds like a harly at time
Had the carbs been worked on before? Maybe it needs a fine adjust on the air mix screw...?
and more ideas
It could be anything really, but I'd try the screw first. Check spark and so on. Good luck!
Your valves are above the "head" A lean fuel mixture can cause the valves to "slap." Also, a valve could be out of adjustment, or bent, if the bike was over-revved.
