SOURCE: chain rattling noise

Locate the knock sensor on your engine. Quick test on them is to tap on the engine with a small hammer near (not on) the sensor. If engine rpms do not change then likely the sensor is bad. Likely what you are hearing (if it is coming from the engine) is detonation. If the noise is elsewhere, it could be a bad chain in the transfer case, but that would need to be looked at to evaluate the problem further.

I have a Kawasaki GPX 600R there's some noise coming from the cam chain. Someone told me that a few gentle bangs on the tensioner would fix it. Is this true or its better to change the tension

how many miles, if cam chain they are about 80 quid maybe less or more, and this needs to be donwe right mate, or bent valves, it could be tensioner if low miles, so a billet one on ebay. they bolt on at the rear of the engine, low down the barrels external. a billet tensioner is about 50 quid, I might know someone who can make one, he does my suzuki ones, where are you. us uk?

Nasty rattling noise from engine only done 5000 miles

it might be due to loose driving chain or timming chain.
i think your bike is still new so best if you consult the workshop for warranty purpose

A bit noisey in the left side crankcase area

This link takes you to a schematic that shows you your timing system (located on the left side)
worn guides or stretched chains cause a constant metallic rubbing noise while a tapping sound that increases in frequency as you accelerate is usually the sound of a valve needing adjustment (clearance). Hope this link helps. Don't forget to vote.

I own a 2004 BMW R1200CL. Almost every time I crank the engine I can hear the valves rattle. I have checked and adjusted the valve clearances to spec. The rattle goes away after the engine starts, but...

Yep, most of these bikes do rattle on startup. The noise is from cam chain slack. A hydraulic tensioner is used in the engine on each side as there are two cam chains. The tensioner leaks down after the engine sits for a while and the chain rattles for a few seconds till the tensioner gets pumped back full of oil again. Once the chain is tight again, then no noise.

BMW came out with an improved tensioner (doesn't leak down as quickly) that you can install on your engine to fix the rattle. Note that it is much easier to change the RHS tensioner than the LHS one.

Good Luck!

Rattle at 4000 constant reves

from what you describe it sounds like cam chain,use a long screwdriver ( or something like ) as a stethoscope and touch the engine with metal end, put the screwdriver handle to your ear and locate where the noise is coming from ( mind you dont get burned or anthing caught in moving parts )

Engine nose on my 1989 kdx 200 it's like a rattle/tick noise

I suggest doing a compression test. On 2 stroke engines with a symptom of a rattle in the engine, it is usually excessive piston to wall clearance, also known as piston slap. If your compression is low, around 100 psi or less, you should tear down the top end and measure the piston and cylinder for both sizing and clearance.
