Ticking sound   Technical-Bikes

Hi guys,

A few weeks ago I’ve build in my chubby air kit. The bike runs fine and I really can feel the extra power. 
 

But when I'm driving on the highway, and I'm driving 110 km/h at a constant speed, the bike sometimes hold in and as soon as it does I hear a kind of ticking sound coming from the cylinders.  (I think it's the cylinders). 
 

Does anyone knows what this could be?
First I was thinking maybe the air fuel ratio was too poor by the pms, but when I’ve give the pms 1/4 more my bike was running worse. (Holds in for a second when opening full throttle)

Not sure what the hesitation is all about but I suspect the intake noise is always there and just more noticeable when it's happening.

I know very sure it isn’t the intake noise. 
It’s literally a ticking sound and at the same time the bike holds in for a second.
