Yamaha v star 650 noise?

Hi everyone,*
I just bought a 2009 yamaha v star 650 custom used at a yamaha dealership that had 10,000 miles and i changed the oil, shaft oil, spark plugs, and air filter. otherwise than that, everything is stock and no customization have been made to the bike.*
i recently started to hear a lot of loud clicking noise and it gets louder and faster with as the RPM rises and goes back down. im wondering if valve clearance has to do with any of it, or the cam chain tensioner. if anyone knows anything about this, please let me know. I just ordered some new Cobra 3/4 drag pipes and about to order a jet kit so im really excited to ride but dont want to damage the bike any farther.*
thank you in advance!*

here is the link to the videos i have taken of the sounds:*

clicking noise*

here is the backfiring,*
