CBR900 Clicking/ knocking noise......HELP please!!

Hey guys....im hearing a nasty clicking/ knocking noise from my bike. It sounds like its coming from the top end somewhere but im not too sure what it could be.I dont really hear it at idle but when the bike is under a load it get pretty loud. It is a very fast tapping. I can hear it when i rev it up in neutral and its not too loud but when im riding it it get louder because of the load on the engine.....any ideas? Any help would be highly appreciated.

it could be the cam chain tensioner, they often play up on early blades.

not sure if a 98 tensioner will fit, as its a slightly different engine, tensioners are not to expensive about 40, if it is the tensioner, the noise will mainly come from top end, right hand side off engine (as you sit on bike).

A 98 tensioner will be ok. They are about a mm longer, Probably make it tighter. Check the mileage on your cam chain and wear on your slipper. The guides dont usually wera too much.
