Thumbs up 950 owners

950 owners has anyone experienced top end rattle or tapping,to me sounds like a valve or lifter problem.
These noises have only just started & getting worse.
My dealer mechanics tell me that's what occures after the bike has been run in & on it's next services they will deal with it.Also that V-Twins tend to rattle in the top end.
My next service is due (10,000km), close to it now.I have checked oil levels,all okay there.
From my experience thier statement I believe to be in correct.
Has anyone else experienced this or have any opinion regarding this would be appreciated
