That rattle sound is from the cam chain tensioner as previously mentioned.  You don't have the head rattle that affected some of the early bikes, they have a very loud rattle that never goes away.   My 2018 XRT sounds just like yous and I used to have a 2012 that had the head rattle that needed the head to be replaced.  On those old bikes if the head doesn't rattle you don't have an issue.
Do I just need to change the tensioner? Do I need to check the timing chain

There are mechanical stops in the tensioner which when there is enough slack they will take up some of the slack and it will quiet down.  I wouldn't worry about it, I don't and my bike sounds the same.  Other bikes that have hydraulic tensioners do the same thing.  24K miles so far and no issues.

This problem hasn't been solved yet and there's a new problem and I was parked and the motorcycle collapsed and my side brace broke and the screw broke and my front end broke

If you read the collective responses to your original post about this engine noise I think you will find that you don't have a problem, this is normal. As for the bike falling off the stand, that's unfortunate.

Yeap camchain tensioner noise. Don't pay attention to it would be my advice - it's nothing harmful. Did you get the head replacement done?

The noise will go away if you start the bike again (after the tensioner auto-tightens itself)

I rode my Gen 1 to 41K with that rattling noise and not a single problem...

What exactly is the head replacement because I'm traveling abroad and I have to buy my own accessories
