I would inspect the chain drive system. Maybe there is a branch or debris of some kind lodged in or around the drive chain. Have you changed your sprocket recently? Someone posted that if it is reversed, or flipped around that it makes a weird noise.

the heat sheild on the header pipe was loose on my xx after the 2nd ride, it was more of a vibrating noise, might not hurt to check that as well. I know others have had the same issue...
