Tacking noise

I have a 2001 V star 1100 and I have a tacking noise on the left side when I lean the bike to the right very little. Any one know what this might be?

This is normal for Vstar . On the other side you might hear a whirling + a ticking also.
If you stop hearing the ticking, then you need have a look see.. Ticking is a good thing.

Thanks Farmall but this isnt a ticking. With the bike straight up you cant hear it but when you lean it a little then it is there. Sounds like it is coming from the crank case or maybe the clutch but I am not sure.
