So I am trying to chase down where it is coming from, I have a mechanics stethoscope to pinpoint the location and it appears to be coming from the fuel injectors. Everywhere I checked on the engine casing is normal although the clutch is noisy. When I put it on the throttle body ( engine side ) it is where the knock seems to be coming from. I was surprised how noisy the injectors are with the scope against them. Is it possible the injectors are the source oh wise ones?

Hey Mate, could You make a video?
Doubt I could capture the sound over the running engine, I watched a video on this forum where the guy tried to capture the sound , didn't work. It is faint, isn't there until it warms up, and the bike runs good

Fuel injectors make noise. They tick, and if you have a scope on them, it will be loud. If this is the only place you have found a noise, then don't worry about it.

Big end is like deep knocks. They got bass. Top end is more tinny, and metallic. Timing chain is a rattle.

Just something worth looking at, back when I had my 00 years ago, I had a light laydown with it. After the lay down the bike sounded like there was a woodpecker inside. Turns out the culprit was one of the sparkplugs not firing because the coil / connection to the coil was loose.
