I made the litany of changes after the symptom appeared. New cables to eliminate that variable. No spacers. 25lb-ft of torque.

11 speed is really cutting the tolerances to a minimum. Any chain protrusion, slight link offness, tooth misshape, matters more with such little fudge factor. At work we would try a replacement part pretty quick. Andy.
Thanks. I suppose pending this thread I will just buy a new cassette and hope for the best. I don't think it should make that ticking-noise so if this is as good as it get's, it may get sold and replaced with SRAM or Campy. However, I really think Shimano's standard is higher, considering my other cassette works flawlessly.
