My new ultegra hub with "new" 8speed used to make a nice quality sounding deep click when free wheeling. Now, after tightening the lock ring (to spec. 40 N/m)on my cassette, the hub now makes a tinny cheap type of clicking when free wheeling. Anyone else experience this?

The same happened to me when my LBS degreased and relubed my body to get rid of metallic popping sound whenever I applied a lot of force on the pedals, when out of the saddle.
The metallic ploink didn't go away, the rattling sound of my hub did.
