couldn't view the video,I have noticed that when I upload something onto "the new photobucket" I have to move it to an album before anyone can view it.Especially if I upload it from my mobile device.
I am thinking about trying another photo sharing site. Move it into an album and post a link to the album and see if I can give it a listen.
You are right about what I was referring to on the HLA's. Have you check the 2 cast exhaust manifolds and their gaskets where they bolt onto the head?
I would like to hear it now and think a little on it.If the HLA's are bad, i.e.leaked off or collapsed it would give a similar noise. you might want to run a bottle of Lucas Oil treatment in place of some of your oil when you change to see if it quietens down some,It looks thick as molasses when you pour it in but I have had very good luck with it.
You have my curiosity up now ,Ceal. I want to know whats up even more now.
There is also a spring up near the top of the heads that keeps each side tight as well,if it is collapsing or is weak you will still hear chain slap even with manual adjusters.it is pictured here http://www.cheapcycleparts.com/oem-p...hain-tensioner

If you strech them them out a little and your noise goes away,you may want to find some new ones. I figure your bike is subjected to a lot higher ambient temperatures than most,so the springs may be a little weak.I would try that move first because it costs nothing to try it.I'm all about eliminating the simple and cheap stuff first. Keep us posted mi hermano,
If you see it on my bike I did it
