knock knock! wtf?

My 919 is knocking. It knocks relative to the speed of the bike, not the motor. And doesn't knock parked in neutral. Drivetrain? The noise has a slight rattly quality to it if that helps. Mileage is approx. 32,600 with 4200 having been put on in the last two weeks. I'm trading the bike so I'm not wanting to throw cash at it. Thanks!

chain has kinks.... clean it WELL, ride it (UNLUBED!) around the block to try it off, lube it WELL, then adjust.

Check your rear wheel bearings too, especially the brake side.
