    Hard to tell. When's the last time you changed the oil, adjusted the valves, carb, etc?

    did you recently change the oil filter? if so loosen the bleeder screw behind the cylinder and check for oil pressure up top

    the skid plate reflects a lot of engine noise as well in case thats a new addition

    That sure sounds like a rocker arm / valve to me.

    Not sure what the root cause, but the everything quieted up when it was brought back to spec.

    Best I can tell is it got louder after I hit a flooded out section of trail one day... But I am not sure. Runs good still.
