Thanks for the quick reply.
Upon further auditory inspection, the sound does seem to be coming from the cam chain.
I loosened the safety nut on the tensioner, then turned the adjustment bolt only half a turn clockwise and it broke off...
Just ordered a new, used tensioner (which comes with 2 cam chains, the guides, and mounting pieces/bolts) for $20 (should get here Thursday). Also ordered the manual.
With such a quiet tick of the cam chain, do you think it'd be bad to ride this bike for about 200 miles tomorrow?
Edit: I don't know how relevant this is, but when I changed the filter/oil I never saw any metal pieces in the oil, nor on the magnetic drain plug. =P
