I got everything tightened up and is sound like its coming from the front cylinder. I believe it does have adjustable push rods. And advise on how I should proceed?

It's impossible to diagnose a sound remotely like this. It's a moderately informed differential diagnosis at best. Does the ticking, clicking, whatever it is change with engine speed that you would associate with valve train? If so look there.

It could still be anything from a cracked piston skirt, to a rocker tip, to a lifter, to a bent push rod, to an exhaust heat shield, to too many other things to list. Hopefully it's simple. Hopefully it is easily and inexpensively found. You're still just got to start isolating the sound and eliminating potential problems. Start with the easiest / cheapest stuff first and work out from there.

It not the drive train the the ticking goes faster with the RPM going up. If your going 60 and pull in the clutch its quite. Is there a way to upload a video or audio?

Still can't tell any directionality from the video.  You're saying the sound goes away if you pull the clutch in?

If so check inside the primary.  Might be a loose compensator nut  :nixweiss: ?  At some point going to have to start opening things up to really find out.

My mistake the sound only slows down and get quite when I let off the throttle. It pings and when I throttle and RPM go up the ping goes up with it.

Dig in to it or take it to a shop.  Not much more can be from a distance.
