I bought an '18 DA in Feb 18, and chose to replace it with another '18 DA due to external damage in Apr 19. On the first bike, I had the very noticeable "ticking" on the right side. At the first oil change at 4000 miles, my dealer's maintenance director listened to it (in a cursory manner) said it was "normal" and chose to ignore it. The replacement bike has had no "ticking" whatsoever and I now have 12,000 miles on it. Sadly, I know this does not help you, but I certainly wonder about an ongoing issue that not being addressed.
