The tensioner in my XR was different to the Yamahas. It was an automatic tensioning device inside the side of the cylinder and head which applied tension to the chain. Once the chain is worn to a certain limit, it could no longer do its job, and subsequently the chain rattled. I have a feeling some of the smaller 2 valve Hondas are the same, but it has been a while!
Might want to check it out.
Take the rocker cover off, pull up on the top of the chain like you would with a normal chain. If it lifts up off the sprocket, it is cactus. Good luck!
