Funny rattly sound???

I been noticing lately this odd rattle like sound when riding mid range speed 30-45, notice it less when I on the throttle....goes away with the clutch pulled in. Sounds like it coming from the middle of the bike. I thought it was a loose chain ( not sure if that would make that noise...) that's why I have been struggling with adjusting it.

Any ideas what it could be??? Oil level is good...probably due for a change though....maybe 3-4K since the last change. Bike has a total of 5600 miles on it.

If its sounds like mine did below its the chain. Tightened it up and all is good.

Anytime. I didn't pay any attention to it but Invader pointed it out after he saw my video.

I have the same sound. Adjusting chain tension quiet it for a while but it came back. Chain is whithin spec and sprockets look good. I think the noise is coming from the chain guide. It's there at all speeds when accelerating. Just happen that a high speeds wind noise covers it.

A non-dampened front sprocket can get noisy too... How many miles is there on the chain and sprockets? Chain may also be unevenly worn (unevenly 'stretched').
