Has almost 18k.. got the bike a little over 16k.. not sure what all maintenance was done before I got it.. I was thinking maybe a valve adjustment?

could be does the noise go away as you rev it? what you can do is take a long screw dryer put it to the side of the block (chain side) near the timing chain tensioner and listen for the noise put your ear on the end of the screwdriver thats if you dont have a stethoscope ....also put it on the top of the valve cover and listen

I know it's definitely on the chain side cause I thought I heard when riding so I leaned down on both sides and its definitely the chain side ..but it sounds like its kind of high ip on the bike... am I in any danger of hurting the bike because I still have to go to my class tom and then go home (100m)

So this tapping sound seems to be happening when the bike is over 200 degrees and goes away slightly when the clutch is pulled all the way in.. but when below 180 no tapping

So I pulled my fairings off and the tapping seems to be coming more from the exhaust .. I have had a couple people who work on vehicles listen to it and all say sounds like the motor is fine and its just a rattle somewhere.. any suggestions

If it's an 07+ bike, have a look at the exhaust valve... might be a bit loose and knocking around in there.
