Your unit comes with automatic cam chain tensioners for each cylinder, sometimes they get stuck or just wear out, you can try taking it off and reinstall it, a lot of time thats all it takes. If the noise is still there then I would replace it, its just two bolts holding it on.

How much slack should my zr7 chain have

u don't want to much play in it cause if it is to loose it will wear out the sprockets very fast but it will do the same thing if the chain is to tight it will wear out and stretch the chain out.
