    If it works I would ignore it.

    It may be worth pulling the primary cover to make sure nothing is askew, catawampus or possibly broken!

    That said, my Buells tend to make more mechanical noises than my Sportster. It could be piston slap? Maybe the bores are a little loose at 25K.

    When it's "slapping" pull the clutch. Does it go away?

    And take a video.

    My bike made a rattle and I couldn't figure it out for a bit. I could barely hear it at idle and mainly heard it when higher up in the RPMs. I finally figure out it was my front headlight bracket ('L' shaped sheet metal) that was broken. It was cracked and didn't look broken until I moved it to work on the headlight. So look around and check things that are not obvious right off the bat.
