It's got a yoshimira exhaust and standard filter at the moment.

I've only owned the bike for a week and was just curious if that's how the bike sounds at idle.

Guess they sound like a bag of nails when idling.

When I got my K9 I thought it sounded a bit noisey, I changed the cam tensioner for peace of mind

I've had 5 and they've all sounded "noisy". Put 50,000km's on my last one without any issues. 38,000 on my current 1000 so far.
