Noise. Worried

Ok got a 2008 650 12,000 miles wix 1359 filter and 20w50 full syn valvoline moto oil, lately I've noticed after the engine is really hot and idling there is a tick noise that sound like a spark jumping but that's not it just it has that sound. It's sort of comes and goes not constant with engine rev. Do I need to be worried it's not loud and runs great. ???,,, any ideas. Help ease my mind if possible

Many people have reported such a noise. The answer to 99% of noise worries is ear plugs.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Thanks for the reply. Could it be cam chain related I don't see how they could be streached this low of miles and also the cam tensioner system seems pretty fool proof anything you advise I check ?

I would advise you stop worrying about it. It's common.
