Cam chain noise?

I'm hoping for some input. I've read a bunch of posts on the cam chain tensioner going bad but I'm not sure if that's the noise I have. It's a loud knock/rattle that seems to come from the right side of the motor. It happens between 2-4k rpms, but won't do it in neutral, only when rolling in first or second gear with the clutch out. It speeds up in conjunction with the rpms. Shouldn't a loose cam chain make the noise while sitting in neutral as well?
Any input or suggestions is much appreciated.

Sounds pretty similar to when I had a delrin cam chain guide come loose in the first few hundred miles on my 800 road a few years ago. It's apparently pinned into place halfway between the cam cogs and the lower cog. I guess sometimes the pin breaks and it wobbles when the chain rides over it? Get it checked out by the dealer - there may be a notice and replacement policy. One would hope anyway.
