Hard to listen to the engine as the exhaust is overpowering everything.
Mines sounded rattly from when it was nearly new some 6000 miles ago..
could be valve clearances needing doing, or rattly cam chain...

It's hard to hear anything out of normal from the sound clips.... But I agree with "rappey" should check you valves and cam chain.

This is not to say that there is anything wrong, BUT it is something you should check out when buying a used bike... AND it's also something you should learn to do yourself... Download the service manual and it will give you step by step procedures.
