Hello everyone, i recently bought myself a beautiful 2010, but i have no noticed this rattle/ticking noise coming from mostly the left side of the bike, it has a manual chain tensioner installing, i hope someone can tell me if this sound is something to be worried about or not.
I have heard these bikes make a lot of engine noise but its hard not to be a little worried when it ticks and rattles 馃檪

Here is a little link so you can hear what I'm talking about.

That is actually pretty quiet compared to what my 2015 sounded like before I changed the timing chain in it. Enjoy the bike and ride it well.

I dont think the video captures the sound very well, its a quite load rattle/ticking when its idle. When I'm riding, it switches over to a more metallic scratching/rattle noise mostly between 3-6k RPMS.
Not sure about your bike but it's safe to say that these motors are noisy
I heard it a bit, sounds like heat shield came loose or something is touching the frame\exhaust. Depends on mileage, maybe time for valve clearance check? maybe?

It's done 70k kilometers, however dealer told me valves had just been checked, but my heat shield is cracked so it might be that
