Before jumping to any conclusions, make sure you compare the sounds of this 426 to another one incase what you're hearing is normal

LOT's of noise from the engine. Sounds like a sewing machine.
Never had a problem though. Runs hard and strong!

... Sounds like a sewing machine...
I don't have a ton of experience with the YZF/WRF when compared to other bikes, but the sewing machine description seems very fitting to the bikes I've listened to and to the WR426 we recently acquired. Ours sounded a bit like a sewing machine & dishwasher running (plates clanging, etc), so I tore it down to check & mic things out and she was very healthy.

I have an 01 wr426 and it does the same thing, this is a normal sound for the wr's, i've ridden many others and ridden with many others and the all do that, especially when you lug the engine, solution to this problem is drop a gear and rev er out
Thats chain slap. As the chain comes around the front sprocket it will hit the guides.
