My 04 Z400 has a weird ticking noise going on in the calve train... checked the valve clearances and the right intake side was about a thousandth of an inch too tight... i dont think that could have caused an issue. I might be wrong.

How many clicks are left on your tensioner? Rattling at idle but not so much on accel is a good sign your timing chain is stretched and ready for replacement. Take the middle bolt out first and remove the spring, then take the tensioner out and see how many clicks are left until it’s maxed out.

Thank you. Never would have thought of that
