engine sound, normal? wr450f

I am also scared for it to be a rod bearing or similar.. Although strange if it is.. The bike has not run more than 40-50 hours or so..
Seems like i have to search after another wr450 around here, and try testing it to compare..

i pulled of the clutch cover, and crank cover today, to check if i could find play or something else wrong..
Crank bearings seems tight, nothing to point out anywhere.. Only hearing the play in the gearbox when turning the crank both ways.. very nice smooth feeling when turning the engine around..
At TDC i could hear a very little sound in the top end/cyl area, but this is normal i guess since the piston is changing direction there? No clunk, only a little thumpy sound.
Still wondering about pulling the top end of, to check piston/rings and rod..
Havent found anyone nearby with a similar bike yet
