Default ST150 Tapping noise

Iv recently bought an ST150 on 95k and recently a tapping noise when revs are sat around 3k, don’t sound like it’s coming from bottom end but no 100% sure, anyone got any advice/help on this?

check the basics as mentioned above, not uncommon for these to be a bit tappy but if too loud then possibly cam wear or worst case big ends, take it to a decent tuner and let them have a looksy
