I’m at a doctors appointment so cant listen now but is it whining when you take off? I know mine does slightly and I believe it is caused by the straight cut gears in the transmission. Nothing wrong though I have had a few bikes that do that.

Yeah that doesn’t sound quite right to me either. I’m not sure what a cam chain sounds like when it is too tight but you may be on to something there. It doesn’t really resemble the “normal” whine that mine has. It kind of sounds like the chain noise you get from an electric chainsaw. Not sure if there is a way to verify that oil pressure is correct and oil is getting up to the cam? I know there are different tricks to do this on different bikes, never had a 300 apart though…
