What speeds is it noticeable? Does it change with load/no load?
The injectors do click, but not all that noticeable.
It could be alternator drive gear backlash, some have it more than others. Does the ticking change if you turn the headlights on and off? If the noise changes based on alternator loading, then that is likely the noise, other than hearing it it is not a problem.
I had a ticking noise once in mine, it was broken exhaust header pipes on two cylinders. The welds inside the flanges broke, pulled the exhaust and welded them better than new.
