What is this noise :( (05' CBR1000RR)

Hey guys. Replaced my head gasket b/c coolant was being pressurized, and everything besides the head gasket was working fine before this. Now I've put everything back together, the head gasket issue is fixed (coolant no longer pressurized) but now there's obviously a problem somewhere else...I though it might be the CCT because I did have to disassemble that, but it sounds like the noise is coming from the left side of the bike, and the CCT is on the right side...although I could be wrong...

I asked a friend and he said it was the timing and I need to drop the engine again to adjust the camshaft "EX" and "IN" to make sure they're flush. the thing is, I thought they were flush and if what he's saying is true how will I know I get it flush this time if I thought I did it last time? If this is the problem what other steps can I take to make sure that this bike is fixed

Yeah, yikes, that sounds really bad. Almost like valves are hitting pistons.

If you canít set the timing while itís in the frame, then drop it before more damage occurs.

Make sure you have the right camshafts in the right spots (I say that because itís easy to mix them up). Intake intake-exhaust exhaust.

Post some pictures of your timing marks. Did you do the repair yourself? If so, what service manual did you follow...Haynes-Clymer-OEM

I hope there isnít any further damage. Good luck, let us know.
