2003 Honda TRX400EX unknown sound

Hello I have a 03 Honda TRX400EX that has been upgraded to a big bore 426. It’s been recently rebuild new cylinder, new piston, new crank, new cam chain, new cam chain guides, new cam chain tensioner (auto), new oil pump, new spark plug, cleaned and rejected carbs to a PJ 42 Main 162 pilot needle 4th slot down. Whenever the engine is under load it makes this funny sound which I’ll link a YouTube video to coming from the left side of the engine. Almost like a timing chain slap but it’s on the wrong side for that. Does anyone have any ideas? I’m exhausted of trying to fix this thing and in need of help. https://youtu.be/vZdWaP-SYNY

Without actually being able to hear it - my first guess would be an exhaust or head gasket leak - second guess is spark knock - you should be running 93 octane non ethanol fuel or 95 octane ethanol blended fuel.

I watched the vid - heard the sound - made my best guess under the circumstances

Someone mentioned somewhere else a compression spring on the cam could be broke making a rattle like sound? Only way to know would be to tear it down though correct?
