Hi, Mahesh7689 I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.

Its probably the automatic cam chain tensioner. Honda told me to ignore the noise because nothing bad is happening. My bike shop said I should replace it with a manual tensioner. I have 15300 miles and will leave it be.

It won't be a bad spring if the bike runs well. It is probably just a tappet out of adjustment. Set the valve clearances. Use only premium gas.

it could be , find a long screw driver or something like and use it as a stethoscope and with the motor running move it around the engine and listen for the noise location, cam chain , valve lash,clutch etc.

I am not familiar with every engine Honda builds, I don't know what a alternator chain is. Normally the cam chain is quiet. You say it runs so it can't be too out of adjustment. If you wish to keep this bike in mint condition, I suggest you have this fixed by a Honda Pro before the condition worsens.

You have a self adjusting cam chain tensioner. It is sold as an assembly. Take out the complete unit and replace it with a new one. The springs are not bad , the device that keeps the pressure on the tensioner is slipping causing a ticking sound.
