Hey buddy, I'm pretty sure that's a normal sound. The ticking could be the cams or lifters or both working in sequence. Very normal.

Now, if its a huge ticking sounds like what diesels sound like, then its your valve timing 100%.

No problem buddy, hope out all works out for you when you strip it down. I striped down my bike and found a bunch of shit I had to replace.

I bought a new front fairing, and wear my lights are there are two cracks. Now, I have to take out off and super glue it so it doesn't get worse. A friend of mine told me it was from the front end stand. fucking sucks. I baby the fuck our of it and I always find something wrong lol
