So the noise doesn't sound like the typical rhythmic cam chain ticking, it occurs as I'm accelerating at low rpm and sounds like a solid, deep knocking. Idling or at higher speeds it's non-existent but when I do hear it, it seems to be coming from the lower right of the engine. Any ideas?

Alright so I checked the oil and the oil filter, no metal flecks. I was also out on the bike today and curiously I've found that the noise only occurs in 3rd gear. Even more confused as to possible causes now. Broken teeth on that gear maybe?
