I might be in trouble

The bike was running like a cheetah chasing for its meal the last time I played with it and the only thing I did to it since was dropping the oil and kickstart it. Strange isn't it?
So I pulled the plug and it looked ok so I removed the head cap. The cams were in place. I have a valve that is a little tight but that's it, the timing chain looks good and the tensioner is doing its job. I have plenty of compression and the kickstarter feels just like usual exept when it "blocks"
I still haven't opened the clutch cover or the flywheel side to check if something is loose in there but the sound I heard made me think that some bolt could be totally loosen and free and being shaken up and down and side to side by the rotating parts of the transmission. So I'll try to find some "free swimming part" in there...
I'm starting to dig tonight so if you have any clue or advise to make me save some time and money, I'd be glad to hear your thoughts.
I'm so sorry I missed last week end ride... I guess I'll gain some experience as an amateur mechanic instead.
