I had this problem with my Tiger 800 XCa 16/16. It started rattling for about 2 seconds randomly from time to time. I didn't care about it and kept riding. When it had 25,000 km on the clock, the rattle started to last longer (about 10 seconds) and became more frequent. Took it to the dealer, which replaced the tensioner. It got worse. The rattle started to last around 20 seconds. A Triumph employee went to my dealer and asked to check my bike. He decided to change the oil pressure relief valve, which made the problem even worst, because the annoying noise was lasting more than 30 seconds. I got tired of it and ended exchanging it for a TEX XCx.
I was reading the entire post to see if there is a solution for this problem, but the outcome was very sad. I just hope that everything comes back to normal for the op.
