Rattle between 3k and 4k rpm under medium/hard acceleration

Hi All.

Ive just brought my fir Fireblade after being knocked of my mille, a 1996 rrt model, and love it so far. I have a bit of work to do to it, The usual stuff, head bearings chain etc,

the only problem im having is between 3000 and 4000 approx rpm im getting a rattle under medium to hard acceleration. after and before this rev range to noise seems to be less evident.

Any ideas please

Thanks Jamie

Where is the noise coming from?
Does it happen in neutral?
Is this in all the gears or just the higher gears?

I would be checking the camchain and tensioner then.

How do i check the tensioner. I have had it to bits and rewound the spring, and replaced it, ran bike but still noisey, do i have to take off rocker cover and check tension??
