Ping sound below air filter near exhaust

Not sure if normal, so I thought I would ask.
When I shut off my street there is a ping sound coming from the engine, it eventually slows down and stops. Is this normal?

I hate autocorrect. I always end up posting some thong I didn't Nintendo.

Go stand next to a group of HD bikes that have just arrived after a good run, you will hear the "pinging" of all the heat shields cooling off.
A very normal sound for HD bikes, and one that I personally think is awesome.
I was hoping my street would do this and it does....
