CCT buzz/ possible worn guides?

I decided to have a shop install a APE CCT on it, while it was there for a valve check and tires.

I'm pretty sure the shop overtightend the CCT bolt on the tensioner, when I rode from the shop I heard and noticed a high pitch almost R/C car sound. Upset, I decided to finally do my own work on my bike. ( Which I always do now) I backed out like a quarter of a turn. Decided that sounded better, rev'd the engine and listened for any timing chain slap and locked the lock nut down with thread locker. Fast forward to almost a year later. I've had a strange " buzz" while in gear throughout the RPM band 3-5k+. Some shops just sit there and rev it and say it sounds " normal" without riding it.

It has gotten persistently louder over time. I've tried redoing all my adjustments to basically a fresh install with almost zero pressure on the CCT then turning it a quarter turn and reving. These adjustments had very little effect on the noise. The engine rev's strong in my opinion. Ironically about 90% of the noise disappears when I clutch in. Someone suggested a noisy " clutch basket" or the springs.

What's the best way to inspect the timing chain guides?

Well there are two bearings in the clutch on that. Maybe one of those is your noise the inner one is in stock @ partzilla so they must sell it once in a while.

This is my motorcycle there others like it, but this one is mine
