If the sound is light and regular it could be your tappet setting is a little too wide. This is a simple engine andif it is not too loud you could probably leave it, otherwise any motorcycle repair shop could reset it quite quickly. The problem is the tappets need to be set with the engine cold.

I have a tapping noise and pulled oil filter down to discover metal fragments in it


That's possibly a sign that one of your main or big end bearings is failing, especially if the tapping noise varies with engine revs. One way to make more certain is to pull off and replace the plug wires one by one while the engine runs. If the noise disappears with one certain plug wire disconnected, then that cylinder big end bearing is falling apart. The next step would be to remove the sump pan and inspect the bottom end bearings one by one.

Rattle from car at 1900revs only when in gear


moving noise is very hard to find.

could well be exhaust shields,
did you take a rubber mallet and tap the parts (exh, end to end?)
bang ,rattle, bang , repeat
seen many bad CAT (brick inside loose) rattle. hit it. bingo. there you go.

i also jam objects in cat shelds to stop them for making noise.

A fairly consistent tapping noise from the top of the engine between 50 - 70 mph. After 70-75 mph in seems to quiet down.


sounds like a lifter is bleeding out or starving for oil at low revs
check oil level and oil pressure
if thats good lifter or tappet clearance next to check
is engine seviced regularly?
slugde build up can cause problems also
if V6 petrol see a lot of worn valve guides causing noise worse when warm and noise comes in and out at 1200RPM
tappet clearance issue noise would be there all the time
lifter can also come and go while holding revs up
