If you post in the K12RS/GT Classic section, you're more likely to get a response.
Where does this "chattering" seem to be coming from ?

Can you safely spin the bike in 1st gear on the centrestand to see if you can duplicate what it's doing on the road ? Be careful when doing this, if you choose to try it.

Unless your ignition timing is off and you are getting pre-ignition pinking I suggest mechanical noises coming from the engine under load could be serious. Check your valve clearances, timing chain and guides for wear first.
